I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine currently working at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I graduated the School of Medicine at the University of the Republic, Montevideo, Uruguay in 2004. I was involved in clinical practice in Montevideo until December of 2008, when my interest in research drove me to the Mayo Clinic to work as a Research Fellow, and a Research Associate in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension.

Over the past years, I have published more than 20 peer-reviewed papers and more than 40 abstracts in prestigious scientific journals in the field of nephrology and hypertension, such as the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology and Kidney international, 4 book chapters, and served as a reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals with a worldwide circulation. I have also presented multiple oral and poster presentations at recognized scientific meetings such as the American Society of Nephrology Renal Week, which is the world’s premier nephrology meeting.

I have received prestigious awards including a “Stimulus Award in Metabolomics” from the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and a “Top Oral Abstract by Trainees for the ASN Kidney Week 2013”
