I have worked as postdoctoral researcher funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation through the program “Juan de la Cierva” (2010-2012). In 2012, I moved to USA (2012- 2017) to work with Dr Lisa J. Rowland at the Genetic Improvement of Fruits and Vegetables Laboratory, USDA-ARS (Beltsville, MD, USA).
In January 2017, I moved back to Spain where I currently live. I work in the research group of Dr Juan Gil “Mejora Genética Vegetal”. My research is focused on identification and analysis of differentially expressed genes during plant development and biotic/abiotic stresses. To achieve that goal, I combine transcriptomic approaches with computational analysis.
I look for ways to integrate bioinformatics with experimentation. I am an advocate of gene expression studies in compliance with MIQE guidelines. I also enjoy working with big data sets. I like data, and I like to extract biological value out of data. If you are interested in working with me, feel free to contact me. I am always happy to work with motivated and enthusiatic people.
