I got my BSc in Biology by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2008. Some months later, I started my PhD in Genetics and Cell Biology in the same University, having my PhD dissertation in March 2014. Since then, I am living abroad. I performed a first Postdoc at Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, Sweden) and I moved to London in October 2015, where I joined University College London (UCL) as a Research Associate, thanks to a Ramón Areces Foundation Postdoctoral fellowship. Currently, I continue working at UCL developing novel light-based therapies to treat cancer. My research interests include cancer, personalized medicine and diagnostics, among others.
