Hello! I am a Leader in Generative Artificial Intelligence at NTT Data and a member of the Argentine Society of Artificial Intelligence's Board of Directors. Former Director for Latin America at GainForest, a decentralized green fund focused on next-level dMRV solutions. I founded Proponas.org, the first Argentinian platform for online petitions, and served as the General Director of Global Shapers Buenos Aires. In 2022, I was invited, as a representative of the youth, to participate in the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. That very same year, the White House invited me to speak, as a leader from the civil society, in the IX Summit of the Americas. Awarded World's Top 30 Youth Leadership Professionals. I have more than ten years of experience managing and developing technological projects and representing Argentina in various forums at the universities of Harvard and Stanford, among others.

The Virtual States

My first book

After three years of work, I published my first book independently. In it, I delve into the geopolitics and philosophy of an era dominated by Artificial Intelligence. I explore the neural networks that shape these algorithms to the divergent models of development of the West and the East, both crossed by the crisis that disruptive technology creates in the labor market. In this book, I interrogate the future of the nation-state, question whether we are facing a new Manhattan Project, and invite the reader to reflect on whether our DNA is becoming just another algorithm. How will we regulate this technology? Is our goal to control the algorithms or to regulate humanity? For the first time, we can write a new script, a new social contract, but now with many more hands. This is going to be the show of our lives. I wouldn't miss it.

Interview to Klaus Schwab

As the General Director of Global Shapers Buenos Aires, one of my goals was to organize Shaping Sur '22. The event took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and brought together over 80 young leaders from Argentina, Chile, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Paraguay, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Watch my special interview with the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, Professor Klaus Schwab. We discussed leadership, the different challenges we face as a society, and even the future of the metaverse!


Let's see what i apparently know

Time to update the system!

web3 & cryptocurrencies

As an early adopter of cryptocurrencies in 2012, and having dedicated both my Bachelor's and Master's thesis to cryptocurrency regulation, it was an honor to speak with Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, about the sector's regulation.

Going deeper into my experience at web3, Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States, dedicated an episode of its 'Update the system' series to show my work as former Director for Latin America at GainForest, a decentralized green fund that works at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and blockchain technology in favor of nature.
