I joined the Parc de Salud Mar in 2009, where I initiated my healthcare and scientific activity in the pediatric area. At the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, alongside Professor Boris Birmaher, I explored the field of bipolar disease further. This culminated in the submittal of my doctoral thesis entitled: “Using sleep architecture to diagnose Pediatric Bipolar Disorder”. I have worked as a lecturer on the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Psychopathology Master’s degree course at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
