Graduate Students


In 2017 I moved to London to pursue an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at King’s College London. It was then that I became fascinated by developmental neurobiology and decided to first join the Rico lab for my bachelor’s thesis, where I studied neuronal assembly through the Neuregulin-ErbB4 signalling pathway. Inspired by my enriching experience in the lab, that summer I undertook a short internship in Juan Burrone’s group where I had the privilege to explore neuronal networks at an EM scale. Following this, I obtained a MSc in Neuroscience with Developmental Neurobiology at King’s College London (2018). During my master’s degree I explored the role that programmed cell death has in sculpting cortical circuits during development in the lab of Oscar Marín. After a short period working as a Research Assistant in the Marín lab, I was offered a PhD position in the LIDo programme that granted me the opportunity to join the Rico lab as a PhD student. Here, I will focus on investigating the contribution of interneurons to the function of cortical circuitry in the context of autism.

Besides doing science, outside of the lab, I love to cook, read, go to the gym and of course travel.
