I graduated from the Universitat Autonòma de Barcelona (Spain) where I obtained my master’s degree and PhD in Neuroscience (2014) investigating brain development from a systems Neuroscience perspective. My interest to further study emergent network dynamics in the developing brain, lead me to join the lab of doctor R. Cossart in Marseille (France) as a postdoctoral fellow, were I was awarded a Marie-Curie fellowship (2015). In 2019, I joined the Marín lab to interrogate how cellular diversity integrates into the developing brain and into functional adult circuits, by combining state-of-the-art molecular techniques with my previous knowledge in functional dynamics.
Besides my scientific interests, I have always been passionate in understanding the issues that generate discrimination, particularly those related to gender equality. That is why I am also currently finishing a master’s degree in Gender studies, to improve research models for future generations and to engage young women in scientific careers and leadership positions.
