After training academically in the field of biomedicine while studying an undergraduate degree in Human Biology and the Master's in Clinical Analysis at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, I did my doctoral work in the Haematology Laboratory of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, focused on identifying possible biomarkers and/or therapeutic targets in high-risk leukaemias. In 2018 I obtained a PhD in Translational Medicine and Research from the Universitat de Barcelona. Since 2020 I have been an associate of the Haematology Laboratory of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, mainly focussing on the field of NGS.
