Short Biography

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics, funded by the National Research and Development Agency from Chile (ANID). My research focuses on the use of computational methods to explore language patterns in a historical corpus of political speeches.

I am a member of the editorial board of Programming Historian (https://programminghistorian.org/) and the Deputy Chair of ProgHist Ltd, the charity based in England and Wales that administers Programming Historian's financial activities.

Since 2017, I have been involved in the R community. I founded and co-organise the R-Ladies chapters in Santiago and Valparaíso, and since 2022, I have been a part of the R-Ladies Global Leadership Team. Additionally, I am the co-founder and chair of LatinR (https://latin-r.com), the Latin American conference about the use of R in research and development. I have also been involved in community initiatives to translate R learning materials from English to Spanish, such as the book 'R for Data Science' (https://es.r4ds.hadley.nz/). I also love Python! That's why I am a co-organizer of the PyLadies chapter in Valparaíso.

I am a certified Tidyverse trainer (https://education.rstudio.com/trainers/) and Carpentries instructor (https://education.rstudio.com/trainers/)
