Research Area

Throughout my scientific career I have focused my studies on mechanisms of gene regulation.  In Spain, I was awarded with a predoctoral fellowship and two grants for short stays abroad. I obtained a European PhD, acknowledged with a National PhD Award. I performed two postdoctoral stays funded by a Marie Curie Program and FEBS long-term fellowship respectively, expanding my knowledge to in vivo models. In 2015, I was funded by the Wellcome trust Sanger Institute and I was seconded in the University of Cambridge. At present, I am a principal investigator in the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus (Helmholtz Zentrum München, Munich, Germany)

Complementarily, I studied a Master in Business Administration (and I obtained the 1stCEU Entrepreneurship Award) being able to understand the priorities of the private sector and develop high-quality translational research. During three years, I was working as Business Development Manager in a spin-off. Additionally, I have experience as an assistant professor in the University for five academic years along with experience in mentoring students.
