In 2006 I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Medicine and Surgery from 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 continue to work to this day.
