I'm a PhD student in Work & Organizational Psychology in the Laboratory of Psychology EA4139 at the University of Bordeaux (France) and the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain). Before, I completed my Master's degree in the same field at the University of Bordeaux with the support of the French Government Scholarship. Prior to my graduate studies, I worked as a HR senior analyst in the Peruvian subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev, and I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the National University of San Marcos in Lima (Peru).

Currently, under the direction of Prof. Adalgisa Battistelli (University of Bordeaux) and Prof. Mirko Antino (Complutense University of Madrid), my doctoral research focuses on the understanding of the transformation of organizations due to the presence of new and disruptive technologies, as well as the identification of professional skills required to deal with the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s challenges.

Research interests

Changing nature of work

We are living in a world where technology is changing our society but also organizations and even the way we work. I am interested in how organizations change as a result of the integration of new technologies (e.g. artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, big data).

Learning in the workplace

Learning at work has been a very productive research line in W/O Psychology. Nevertheless, there is a need for research related to informal learning and other meaningful experiences at work which contribute to the development of strategic skills at work.

Transformation and Innovation

Organizations can facilitate or constrain the development of their employees. In this context, the understanding of transformation and innovation in organizations are two multidimensional phenomena which are important not only for organizations but also for employees.

Methodology and statistics

My research aims to explore organizational phenomena as a process based on a longitudinal and dynamic perspective. At the same time, I learn and explore new ways and statistical tools to analyze the dynamic relationship between individual and contextual factors.
