PhD student at the Conservation and Evolutionary Genetics Group at Doñana Biological Station (EBD-CSIC), Seville, Spain. Supervisors: Carles Vilà and Matthew T. Webster (Uppsala University, Sweden).
I am interested in the patterns and processes that produce and shape biodiversity. I use computational tools that allow the study of genes and genomes. To learn more about my PhD project or other projects that I am involved in, please go to RESEARCH or take a look to my PUBLICATIONS.

MORE about me...
I was born and raised in Canovelles, a municipality located in Barcelona, Spain. Since I was a kid, my father taught me to be hardworking and my mother to become a better person. From both I learned that I should always chase my dreams, if possible. My greatest dream has always been to become a scientist, make new discoveries and contribute to improve the understanding of our world. Thus, at the age of 17, I enrolled at the University of Girona to pursue a BSc in Biology for the following 4 years. During this stage I was particularly interested in animal behaviour, and in my last year I had the chance of studying in Linköping University (Sweden) for some months. Later I moved to University of Barcelona to study a MSc in Biodiversity in which I became more interested in evolution and computers. At the age of 23 I moved to Seville, a city in the south of Spain, where I started my PhD studies in evolutionary biology at Estación Biológica de Doñana, a prestigious research institution part of the Spanish Research Council (see map above). Today, at the age of 26, I am in the last stage of my PhD and my goal is to keep doing science in the future.
