The Social Event office’s main goal is to enhance the work/life balance and help to connect the postdoc community in Umeå (Umu and SLU).
The office organizes and supervises social events like Pub nights, hikes, board games nights, etc…
I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After completing my undergrad degree in Biology at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), I moved further south to Bariloche, in the Patagonian region. There, I spent seven years (PhD + first postdoc) studying genetics, physiology and local adaptation in native tree species. Since July 2021 I have been living in Umeå, working at Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC) in conifer genomics, quantitative genetics and breeding. Outside work, I love cooking, walking while listening to podcasts, going to jazz and other live concerts, practising guitar and keyboards, and playing board games. I joined UPS to connect with new people and to help further the opportunities and prospects of postdocs in Umeå.
