As a clinical neuropsychologist, I have been working in the field of learning disorders for years. I have been interested in the field of refractory epilepsy, the field in which I did my doctoral thesis, since 2008. I am currently part of the Neurology Department and the Epilepsy Unit of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, where assess children who are candidates for epilepsy surgery, as well as perform follow-up and appropriate monitoring.

I am passionate, enthusiastic and rigorous about my work and always keep in mind that we are working for the well-being of our patients and families.
