Since the beginning of my career as a paediatrician, my training has been steered in the direction of Paediatric Nephrology, with special emphasis on the field of renal tubular disease and lithiasis together with Dr Víctor García Nieto at Nuestra Señora de Candelaria University Hospital in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. I completed my training in paediatric renal transplant and dialysis at La Paz University Hospital (Madrid), Virgen del Rocío University Hospital (Seville) and Son Espases University Hospital (Mallorca).
I have published 24 original articles and authored three chapters in books related to the specialist area. I have made around 50 presentations at different congresses, mainly in the field of research, for which I have received 10 awards at a regional and national level. I am currently a member of the RenalTube Group, the Spanish Paediatric Nephrology Association (AENP) and the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA). One of my personal sayings is “There can be no defeat in the hearts of they who fight”.
