She received her Electrical Engineering degree in 1987 from ITBA (Buenos Aires Institute of Technology, a 6 years program), Argentina. She achieved an Advanced Studies degree (Suficiencia Investigadora, 2003) in Speech Processing from the “Universidad Politécnica de Madrid”, Spain. Since 1988 she held academic positions in Argentina, until she became tenured faculty in the rank of the Full Professor in 2004. Since 2007 she was appointed Electrical Engineering Department Chair at ITBA, until 2013. She changed his career path in 2013 to become Engineering Director at Eurocase. In 2020 she started as Project Manager in HipCam Global to develop products with AI capabilities.

In 2018, she started a new position as part time professor at UADE (Universidad Argentina de la Empresa), where she teaches Signal & Systems and Speech Signal Processing.

Her research area is primarily Signal Processing, Speech and Education as subareas. In the University she started research groups in different areas, such as speaker verification, acoustics, DSP applications and EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility). She is the author of more than 25 papers, mostly in the area of signal processing education, published in reviewed journals or presented at international conferences such as IEEE ICASSP. She has been technical reviewer for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems and IEEE ICASSP Proceedings. She designed and successfully accredited a 5 year degree EE program (CONEAU). She also accredited two Master degree programs as well.

In recent years her responsibilities were: Leading R+D efforts of the company to develop a range of technology products and developing software prototypes for range of products based on company’s technology.

She is an active senior member of the IEEE. She is the founder of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Argentina Chapter, actual Chapter Chair and SPS Board of Governors Member at Large (2020-2022).
