PhD Student (role of microbiome in the outcome of stroke)

Working Place:

Institut d’Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS)

Science and me:

I started my scientific career at the age of 19, and never stopped since then. I have touched different areas of research, from plant genetics to cancer. Scientist is my profession but I keep in mind that the outcome of the work is for everybody, so it is mandatory to make non-scientist people understand science.

Experience in Dating or other Engagement:

  • Founder of the PhD Researchers Platform of IDIBAPS.
  • Speaker in the Week of Science of Madrid and Week of Science of Barcelona (years 2015 and 2016; an example here:
  • Dissemination talks to high school students (What I have to do to become a scientist?; Transgenics…what else?).
  • Editor in the dissemination webpage and member of the science dissemination association La Biothèque
  • Member of the competition panel of the first edition of the science dissemination contest YabberXDivulgame.
  • Assistant teacher in the Biology Department of Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

  • Belly dancing or in Latin music pubs, dancing bachata 😛
