Interests

I'm a Ph.D. student co-supervised by Dr. Amy Milton and Prof. Anthony Dickinson. I have a B.Sc. in Economics and a M.Sc. in Mathematical Sciences from the University of Santiago, Chile.

I'm generally interested in human and animal Associative Learning and value based Decision-Making. My Ph.D. work focuses in developing a model of instrumental responding which may account for the difference in responding under different schedules of reinforcement and the transition between goal-directed and habitual behaviour.
