Previous to my bachelor studies I became an Environmental Chemistry lab technician, then I continued with a BSc in Biology at the University of Barcelona. During my bachelor, I was involved in two research projects studying the microbiology of water related to health and virology related to human health.

After completing all the courses in Barcelona, I decided to carry out my bachelor thesis abroad in the framework of an Erasmus exchange program at the Institut Pasteur of Paris, studying the biology of spirochetes, combining microbiology lab work with genomic data analysis. 

To continue with my studies, I joined the M2 program of the master AIRE, Life Sciences track, where I did lab rotation doing an experimental internship first, at the Synthetic FlyLab, where I worked in the MMO CRISPR project - you can check it out here! And a computational internship after, at the Laboratory of Evolutionary Genetics at the ESPCI, where I studied the pyoverdin-producing Pseudomonas from a comparative genomics approach. 

Right now, I 'm a 1st year PhD student at the CRI within the FIRE doctoral school. For my research project I aim at developing synthetic membraneless organelles in bacteria using modular Transcriptionally Engineered Addressable RNA Solvent droplets (TEARS) that can recruit proteins.
