I studied Biology at the University of Seville, where I also obtained a PhD degree working at the department of Genetics. In 2008 I moved to the the University of Groningen. During this postdoc I started to work with the nematode C. elegans, in order to consolidate the presence of this model organism in the field of circadian rhythms research. My postdoctoral experience abroad was completed with a stay of 2 years at the University of Munich in 2012, where we studied functional aspects of the circadian clock. At the moment I am a Marie-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Andalusian Center for Developmental Biology in Seville, studying the reciprocal relationship between metabolism and biological timing in C. elegans.

Lines of investigation

Circadian rhythms and larval development in C. elegans

The most notable result of your research

Nematode C. elegans shows markers of circadian rhythms that are conserved from bacteria to humans.

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

I have been interested in Biology since School. Once I started to do research I was fascinated by the possibility of understanding how living organisms work and witnessing for the first time different aspects of different biological processes.

A scientific desire

I wish that the next generations of researchers will be able to answer more scientific questions, by means of a consolidated R&D system.
