I studied journalism at the Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción (Chile), where I graduated in 2007. I have worked as associate professor on Experimental Media at the Universidad Academia de Humanismo Cristiano (Chile), and as lecturer on Film Aesthetics and Language in Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción (Chile) and Universidad San Sebastián (Chile). I received an MA in Film and Screen Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2018, where my dissertation 'Underground Media in Chile: Counterpublics in Dictatorship and Democracy' was later published as an academic article. I have also worked as a film critic and as an amateur filmmaker.
My research interests include amateur filmmaking and video aesthetic.
