I have been a scientific associate and PhD candidate at the University of Tübingen since 2017, working for the Leibniz-WissenschaftsCampus project “What you touch is what you are: Does touch technology enhance learning and identification through perceived ownership?”. My research focuses on information processing of self-relevant information in digital environments. With an emphasis on the Self-Prioritization Effect, I measure how digital symbols of the self are cognitively processed and how they influence behavior.

In 2012, I graduated from Francisco Marroquín University (Guatemala) with a diploma in Psychology, after which I worked in the area of organizational culture and in the area of education in Guatemala. In 2016, I obtained a master’s degree in Psychology from Maastricht University (Netherlands), with a specialization in Health and Social Psychology.
