Data

Born in Sanlucar de Barrameda (Cádiz) in November 1994. Graduated in Bachelor's Degree in Biotechnology in Pablo de Olavide University (2012-2017). I made a collaboration grant at the Andalusian Center for Development Biology and completed a Bioinformatics Analysis course, during 2017. The following year, I completed the Master's Degree in Molecular Biology Applied to Biotechnological Companies. Nowadays, I am carrying out the PhD thesis in GENYO on the genomic analysis of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex in lung adenocarcinoma.

The most notable result of your research

The most important subunits of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex are highly mutated in cell models and samples from lung adenocarcinoma patients.


How did you come to science and why are you still here?

I knew my scientific desire when I started working independently in the laboratory during the collaboration grant at the CABD. When I discovered the versatility of bioinformatics, I realized that it could be a very useful tool in science for data processing. When I arrived in Granada, thanks to the Garantía Juvenil Program, I could do my scientific work as a bioinformatic at the GENYO research center, where I did the Master's Thesis. Later, I got a contract to start working as PhD student.


A scientific desire

Be a participant in broadening knowledge barrier a little more in any scientific area of study, such as lung cancer. Knowing more about this type of cancer would imply an improvement in the diagnosis of patients with this disease.
On the other hand, I would like to become University professor. In addition, I will spread bioinformatics at conferences for students to teach the opportunities that this tool can give in the era of big data.
