Background

I studied Microbiology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, my Degree Final Project was titled “Malaria Immunology in Pregnant women”. In summer 2015 I did an Erasmus Internship at the Research Center for Molecular Medicine (CeMM) and Medical University of Vienna. Afterward, I started the Master of Clinical Research – International Health track at the University of Barcelona and the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal). I am currently working at the Laboratory of Microbiology of the Public Health Agency of Barcelona. My research interests are focused on maternal and child health and diseases affecting the vulnerable population.

Why GHNGN

I had the opportunity to present my Master’s Final Project about neonatal sepsis in the 3rd. GHNGN Forum organized in Barcelona. I found the conference helpful and I wanted to be a part of the network to help other students and young professionals in Global Health.
