Spanish and English

During my pediatric residency, I discovered my passion for pediatric nephrology, leading me to focus my training in this field. I enjoyed physiopathology and the clinical side of things, but what I loved most was that vital human side. We treat chronic patients, so we see these children grow up and we form a close bond.

After finishing my residency, I worked in the Pediatric Nephrology Department at the Hospital Gregorio Marañón, and then in the Pediatric Nephrology and Kidney Transplant Department at the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, where I am now an associate consultant in the Day Hospital, for dialysis, chronic kidney disease and transplant preparation, arterial hypertension and cardiovascular risk.

I have been involved in the publication of several articles related to Pediatric Nephrology and I wrote three chapters in books on the specialism. I have given more than 30 presentations at national and international conferences related to pediatrics and pediatric nephrology, and I have acted as subinvestigator in several clinical trials that have been developed at our unit.

I am a full member of the Spanish Pediatric Nephrology Association (AENP), of the European Society for Paediatric Nephrology (ESPN) and of the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA). I have also been part of the European pediatric transplant network TransplantChild since 2021, as well as the ESPN work group ‘CKD and dialysis’ since 2023.
