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 a trustee of ProgHist Ltd, the charity based in England and Wales that administers Programming Historian financial activities.

Since 2017 I have been involved in the R community. I founded and co-organize the RLadies chapters in Santiago and Valparaíso, and I am one of the co-organizers of LatinR, the Latinamerican conference about the use of R in research and development. I have been involved in community initiatives to translate R learning materials from English to Spanish —like the book R for Data Science- to encourage non-English speakers to learn to code.

I am an RStudio trainer and a Carpentries instructor.
