I grew up in a city in the northwestern region of Argentina. Although I don’t have a farm background, I always knew that I wanted to work with animals. As a junior in vet school, I became a TA where I found my passion in teaching and researching.

After graduating from vet school, I moved to the U.S. to purse a master’s degree at the University of Illinois. My master’s dissertation focused on finding the best production practices in Illinois’ dairy farms. I’m currently a Ph. D. student, focused on dairy nutrition. I’m looking forward to seeing what the near future brings and hope to give my best to the University and the dairy industry.
