I have dedicated a large part of my professional career to the field of child audiology, which I am passionate about. I have been working at the SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital for more than 10 years. I am an expert in subjective and objective audiological assessment, ranging from very early ages to adolescence. As a cochlear implant planner, I have worked as a stand-in in the implant centre; a field in which I am particularly knowledgeable. I constantly seek to overcome new challenges and learn, both personally and professionally.
