Biography

I graduated in Psychology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, where I also completed my PhD in Neuroscience investigating genetic x environment interactions in several behavioural paradigms in rodents. Since then I have worked as a research fellow at the University of Sussex and at Cambridge University, investigating individual differences and vulnerability to develop neuropsychiatric disorders in preclinical models. I joined the SDDC in May 2017 and I am currently studying the role of alpha2/3 GABAA receptors in anxiety.
