Participación en SRUK

I graduated in Electronic Engineering at University Carlos III of Madrid. After undertaking a MSc in Analogue and Digital IC Design at Imperial College London, I worked in Industry for 3 years in several roles on Consultancy and Telecommunication. In 2017 I started my PhD at Imperial College London, as part of the Centre of Bio-Inspired Technology. My work focuses on the development of nano-scale sensors capable of “filming” what’s happening inside a DNA amplification reaction. This technology has the potential to improve early diagnosis of a wide range of diseases – from Breast Cancer to Zika. I became member of SRUK in summer 2017, and since then I am deeply involved in several initiatives that aim to promote Science and Engineering among both the new generations and the wider society.
