About Me

After my medical school graduation in Colombia, I started working as a primary care physician in a local military hospital. By attending not only military personnel, but also the local population of that area, I witnessed in first-hand the complex social problems derived from drug-trafficking and violence. That experience fueled my interest in psychiatry and addictions. After that I did research on addictions at Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute. Working everyday with this type of patients made me aware of the needs of this population and the relevance and impact of research on substance use disorders and psychiatry.

Research Statement

My long term goal is to pursue a career that integrates clinical psychiatry and research. I am interested in continuing to work on research to better understand mental diseases determinants and help develop interventions to improve their outcome.
