​I graduated in biology from the Complutense University of Madrid. In the last year of my degree I did a internship in the Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology led by Dr. Ignacio Torres Alemán at Cajal Institute, where I carried out my external practices and my Final Degree Project. Subsequently, I did my Master's Degree in Biomolecules and Cell Dynamics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, which allowed me to join the Telomeres and Telomerase group led by Dr. María A. Blasco at Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas to carry out my Master's Thesis. Currently, I am hired as a Research Assistant in the department of Structural Biology of Macromolecular Complexes with Dr. María Lucas.
