"Understanding life has always been one of my main concerns, being the reason why I studied biology. Everything I experienced and learned during this stage has awakened in me a huge interest to participate actively in the fight against cancer. For that reason, since the moment I discovered the relationship between transposable elements and this pathology I knew I wanted to develop my career in this field, because I think it is really innovative and it has high expectations for the future.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love to do activities in nature like hiking, riding a bike or even reading. I really love nature."
