I have 12 years' experience in neonatology at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital. My areas of interest mainly centre on critical neonatal care. Since 2008 I have coordinated the healthcare programme for patients suffering with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. I am the coordinator of the special monitoring programme created for these patients and their families and I actively work with the parent association for these patients. I am also part of the paediatric and neonatal ECMO team and work with the neonatal simulation team. I am a full member of the Spanish Society of Neonatology (SENeo).
