I am a Senior Scientist at NAVER LABS Europe starting on May 2020.

Before, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Facebook AI Reserch where I have studied state-of-the-art Natural Language Processing systems in relation to their language learning skills, and sought to develop a more holistic understanding of intelligence, by trying to model the emergence of complex adaptive systems in silico.

Previously, I did my PhD in Computational Linguistics under the direction of Marco Baroni. I worked in the area of Distributional Semantics, and more specifically, in understanding the strengths and limitations of distributional models when trying to account for the richness of human conceptual knowledge. To this end, I've explored how these semantic representations can be used in inference.

Volunteer Work

En La Tecla computer literacy group

2007 - 2011

This was a project sponsored by the Exact and Natural Sciences Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires, having the double scope of teaching computer basics to low income people while also bridging the gap between the University and people living in poor regions of the city.

I enjoy taking pictures. Here are some that I have taken over the years:
