I am a Clinical Psychologist from the Catholic University of Ecuador and an MA in childhood studies from the University of Leeds. I am now doing my first year of my Ph.D. at the School of Education in Leeds. Throughout my professional career, I have been able to work on different research topics with vulnerable populations, and both in clinical practice and in community interventions I have seen the need to prioritize the mental stability of human beings because this is decisive in the well-being of people. My passion is promoting mental health as a human right that should be accessible to everyone from birth.
Currently, the topics that call my interest the most are mental health in children, adolescents, and young people in contexts of a global health crisis. My theoretical lines are psychoanalysis and childhood studies from which I like to propose collective and individual work strategies.
