Born abroad but raised in Chile. Cari grew up as a child stunned by the stars, she studied Industrial Engineering and getting a Master’s degree in Logistics (both in Chile), and specializing with a graduate degree at MIT in Supply Chain Management (at USA).
But around 3 years ago, she discovered astrophotography, spending one year intensively learning positional and observational astronomy, as well as photography. Then, she decided to quit her job as an engineer to dedicate herself 24/7 to astrophotography and astronomy popularization, from where she also began to travel to capture skies from different latitudes and different phenomena.
Nowadays, she still dedicates lot of time to the study and improvement of her wide-field AstroPhotography techniques, also teaching classes on the same subject and its techniques, and deepening her knowledge in Astronomy to contribute in the world of astronomy popularization, with several organizations such as Astrofotografía Chile, the Chilean Amateur Astronomical Community (CAACh) and collaborations with other astronomical dissemination entities.
