In 2006 I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Medicine and Surgery at the University of Zaragoza. In 2007 I started my residency as a medical intern in the Neurosurgery Department of Santa Creu i Sant Pau Hospital, where I worked until 2012. That same year I started working as an attending physician in the Paediatric Neurosurgery Department of SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, where I still continue to work.
