My research focuses on the development of statistical models of neurodegenerative disease progression, in particular of Alzheimer’s disease. The ultimate goals are to build prediction models for early detection of the disease, and to contribute to the understanding of the disease evolution process.

I studied physics at the Balseiro Institute (Argentina) and obtained my PhD from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 2011. My previous research topics included statistical shape analysis, medical image registration, and brain morphometry.

Research Interests 
  • Statistical analysis of heterogeneous biomedical data.
  • Bayesian modeling, including hierarchical models, Gaussian process and regularized splines.
  • Clinical prediction models, with a particular focus on uncertainty quantification, calibration estimation and risk of bias minimization.
