I am a biologist and I hold a PhD in Biological Sciences and an MSc in Remote Sensing and GIS applications. I work as a researcher for CONICET and lecturer at Gulich Institute - Argentinian Space Agency (CONAE) in Córdoba, Argentina. My research is focused on uncovering environmental drivers of vector-borne disease outbreaks. I am mostly interested in those environmental features that can be derived by means of satellite image analysis, remote sensing time series and GIS-based techniques.

I am part of the GRASS GIS Development team and have recently become the new PSC chair. I am a strong advocate for OSGeo and free and open source software for geo-spatial (FOSS4G). Among other things, I have served as Program Committee chair for FOSS4G 2021 and volunteered as a mentor for GRASS GIS in the Google Code-In contest introducing high school students into the Open Source world.
