I have worked as a paediatric haematologist at the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona since 2010, and I have been head of the Haematology Department since 2018. I combine healthcare and management activities with research. My main areas of interest include platelet diseases, thrombosis and congenital and acquired coagulopathies in children. I am a member of the Sociedad Española de Hematología y Oncología Pediátricas (spanish society of paediatric haematology and oncology - SEHOP), where I belong to the ITP working group; the Sociedad Española de Trombosis y Hemostasia (spanish society of thrombosis and haemostasis - SETH); and the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), within which I am part of the paediatric/neonatal subcommittee.
