Doctor in Psychology, Universidad Católica Argentina
Marina I. Cuello has a Ph.D. in Psychology. She is dedicated to teaching at the Universidad Católica Argentina, in the Department of Research Methodology and at the Final Integration Workshop. She also works in the position of Director of the Thesis of a Degree, and she's on the master's thesis jury and a tutor of doctoral theses at the Faculties of Psychology of several Argentine Universities.
From 2010 to 2015, the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research of the Argentine Republic (CONICET) awarded her a scholarship. It allowed her to do her doctorate at the Interdisciplinary Center for Research in Mathematical and Experimental Psychology (CIIPME), where she studied positive emotions, social skills and empathy in children, and how these variables can modulate their prosocial and aggressive behaviors.
Previously, she was involved in an experimental research project at the Center for Renewable Natural Resources of the Semi-Arid Zone (CERZOS), thanks to a research grant awarded by the Scientific Research Commission of the province of Buenos Aires.
Between 2006 and 2007 she settled in England, where she was invited to collaborate as an assistant in the Department of Zoology at the University of Oxford. She worked in the Behavior Ecology research group, led by Dr. Alex Kacelnik, where she studied the decision-making of birds based on incentives.
The results that were obtained in her various investigations were published in recognized scientific journals and presented at national and international congresses.
As a tutor, Marina encourages her students to find a subject that enthuses and motivates them personally so that they can enjoy each step of the research process. She believes that perseverance, dedication, teamwork and a love of knowledge are fundamental to achieving a successful project.
We came to this world to learn, to enjoy, and to leave a positive mark on others.
