My work

I am currently a PhD 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 change in an historical corpus of political speeches.

I am a member of the editorial board of Programming Historian, 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, 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'. I also love Python! That's why I am a co-organizer of the PyLadies chapter in Valparaíso.

I am a certified Tidyverse trainer and Carpentries instructor
