I am a Catalan researcher born and raised by the shores of the Mediterranean sea and currently living in Saint Louis, MO (United States). I grew up in Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona), but I have my family origins in a little cozy village called Capçanes, Priorat: a region full of wonderful lansdscapes, mountains and great wine.
I was shaped by the mediterranean culture and I consider myself a hardworking person, fearless, curious and with certain connectedness to the people who matter. As a nature lover, I love hiking, travelling and discovering new places.
My goal in research is to bring together my background on vascular diseases and aging. Specifically, I am focussed on elucidating molecular mechanisms underlying a rare premature aging disease called Progeria in order to find new targets and treatments.
I want to become a leader in aging-related vascular research and I am willing to promote and encourage scientific knowledge in our society. Science touches the lives of every person on this society so I strongly believe in the need to step outside of my research in order to communicate my science and engage with the public. I envision using science as a key instrument to achieve inclusion and equality worldwide.
