    I am a postdoctoral fellow in psycho-oncology at the SCALab laboratory of the University of Lille and the ONCOLille Institute (France). My research projects aim to study psychosocial determinants of the impact of cancer to identify the levers of action to support patients and their relatives. Over my research contract, my work focuses on identifying the literature about digital interventions in psycho-oncology, their methodological quality, and their effectiveness to support patients and caregivers. This work allows me to participate to the development of an evidence-based digital intervention in psycho-oncology. I'm also interested in how belief toward illness and medications are shaped and how they influence adjustment to health threats. I'm a member of the IPOS SIG Survivorship.

    I work with an interdisciplinary team that provides comprehensive care to cancer patients and their families, under the Mental Health and Addictions Observatory of the Interdisciplinary Studies Centre of the National University of Rosario. This team carries out inter-institutional activities with different types of organisations, providing the community with workshops, informative talks and psychological care, all free of charge. Thanks to the fact that many activities are online, people from all over Latin America have access to them. I really enjoy all these activities, because they are always carried out in an atmosphere of joy, hope and mutual support. I started studying at the age of 38 without having much idea of what to expect, I found this team when I was about to finish my degree and from that moment on I started to train with them and to participate in all the activities they propose, and once I graduated I was able to start working as a psychologist for the community of patients who come to the team. I'm very glad to join with IPOS, thank you very much!
