I trained as a specialist in Paediatrics at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital. I have also been trained on biomedical practice and research through the Master's degree in Clinical Sciences (University of Barcelona) and completed my PhD within the Sant Joan de Déu Research Institute paediatric infectious diseases group. I have an extraordinary doctorate prize from the University of Barcelona. I work in the Paediatric Inpatient Department and provide constant care to the neonatal and paediatric critical care transport team. I research infectious diseases and have participated in several international publications. I like working in teams where the different members share their goals, talent, passion, commitment and perseverance.
