Biosketch

I was born in Barcelona in 1979. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Physics at the University of Barcelona in 2012. From 2013 to 2014 I worked as a collaborator at the Estructura I Constituents de la Matèria department, at the University of Barcelona. I obtained a Master’s degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at the University of Barcelona in 2014 with a thesis based on the study of front dynamics in micro-channels.

On November 2016 I joined the Phd programme in Mathematics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and CRM, where I work under the supervision of Tomás Alarcón and Aurora Hernández-Machado on Mathematical modeling of fluid front propagation at the micro-scale.
