I study Anthropology at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), where I have also volunteered as a student tutor. I am interested in computer assisted design and its application in archaeological research and outreach, as the three-dimensional reconstruction of findings and excavation surfaces. I work in the Historical Museum of La Matanza (Buenos Aires Province, Argentina) as an assistant technician. Besides surveying the museum backyard, I engage in outreach activities and also perform as a guide for the Pleistocene-megafauna exhibition. My current research topics are related to historical artifacts, from glassware to floor tiles, collected both in the Museum backyard and La Elvira site (see my publications), and also the prehispanic pottery technology found in La Matanza river shores (unpublished).
