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 Trainee, Research Fellow, and Senior Research Fellow in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension.

Over the past years, I have published more than 40 peer-reviewed papers and more than 60 abstracts in prestigious scientific journals in the field of renal and cardiovascular diseases, 3 book chapters, and served as a reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals with a worldwide circulation, such as Hypertension and 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 several awards including a 2-years postdoctoral fellowship from the American Heart Association (2010-2012), the “Outstanding Research Fellow Award 2012” from the Department of Medicine at Mayo Clinic, a Training & Career Development Award from the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Mayo Clinic, a “Top Oral Abstract by Trainees for the ASN Kidney Week 2012”, the “Top Scoring abstract in all 16 American Heart Association’s Specialty Conferences 2012”.
