Research Assistants


In 2003 I completed a Superior Technical degree in Pathology and Cytology at Ramón y Cajal Institute, Valladolid, Spain. Combining work and studies, I successfully completed my degree in Nursing in 2008, which I took at the Health Science University in Valladolid, Spain. However, my passion for science and research drove me to continue my career as a research technician until today. I love being involved in research projects and find my professional joy in assisting students and postdocs in their search of new and exciting knowledge.

I started my scientific career working as research technician in two different labs studying inflammatory processes in health and disease. I joined Beatriz Rico’s lab in 2013, where I collaborated in a project that investigated the genetic mechanisms involved in GABAergic synaptic targeting. I am currently working on a new project, studying the assembly and organization of inhibitory networks in the cerebral cortex. Outside the lab, I enjoy spending time at the gym, doing crafts and reading. I love dancing, travelling and I am an unconditional fan of The Lord of the Rings.
