I studied computer science and philosophy at the National University of Córdoba (Argentina). During this time, I worked at the National Space Activities Commission (Argentina) on several projects, including software engineering and programming neural networks, parallel processing, and remote sensing. I obtained my PhD at the Cluster of Excellence SimTech – University of Stuttgart (Germany). Before joining TU Delft, I was a research associate at the High Performance Computing Centre Stuttgart, University of Stuttgart.


My research interests focus on themes in the philosophy of science and technology: computer simulations, Big Data, scientific models, and laboratory experimentation. My current research also includes themes from the philosophy of computer science (computer models, specifications, algorithms), data-intensive research (dark data, scientific data officer) and the ethics of technology (ethics of computer simulations). I am also researching on the philosophy of medicine (simulations of infectious diseases) and visualisation of computer simulations.
