I am an expert in Neuropaediatrics and work as a consultant in the Neurology Department at Hospital Universitari Dr. Josep Trueta and in the School Learning Disorders Unit (UTAE). My main line of work in the UTAE is the diagnosis and management of learning disabilities (dyslexia, ADHD, dyscalculia, etc.). I actively participate in teaching activities for future healthcare professionals in both Medicine and Educational Psychology. I am also a full member of the Spanish Paediatric Neurology Society (SENEP). In my free time I enjoy doing things with my family.
