​Pablo obtained a Biotechnology degree at the University of Zaragoza (2014-2018). He studied the last year at the University of Gothenburg and performed the bachelor thesis at Marc Pilon´s lab. The following year he worked at Matxalen Llosa´s lab (IBBTEC). He obtained the master´s degree “Molecular Life Sciences” with specialization in Bionformatics (2019-2021) at the University of Lausanne and carried out the master thesis within Sara Mitri´s lab, where he studied directed evolution of microbial communities with computational models. He worked for a year at the microbiology department of the hospital “Hospital General Universitario de Valencia” and was involved in the whole genome sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 samples. In May 2023 he joined his prior research group at the IBBTEC (Matxalen llosa´s lab) to pursue a PhD degree.​
