I got my PhD in developmental genetics and computational biology at Marcos Egea's lab (Cartagena, Spain) in 2012.
I switched to cancer epigenomics during my first postdoc at Miguel Angel Peinado's lab (Barcelona, Spain), where I enjoyed dealing with multiple challenges, including the analysis of the epigenomics and gene expression status of repetitive elements.
I'm passionate about computational biology in all its flavours. I enjoy to engage in collaborative research, but also work in a largely independent manner, mainly to develop new tools addressed to experimentalists to browse and analyze biodata.
I'm very grateful to all the talented and diverse researchers I have worked alongside, who excel in technical skills but also in wider values, e.g. Marcos Egea (lateral thinking), Julia Weiss (efficiency), Miguel A. Peinado (excellence), Mark D. Robinson (reliability) and Tuncay Baubec (ambition).
I'm also thankful to the bright students I tutorized in the past: Francisco Chen (Univ. Barcelona, by M.A. Peinado), Alberto Sierco (Univ. Barcelona, by M.A. Peinado), Gustavo Rosell (UOC/UB), Lorena Ponce (UOC/UB), Jose Munuera (UOC/UB), Mar Garcia (UOC/UB) and Chaitra Rao (ETH Zurich, by T. Baubec).
