University of California, Davis
I am a PhD candidate in Integrative Pathobiology at the University of California, Davis. My research focuses in viral diseases pathogenesis and pathology of wildlife, trying to bring the molecular understanding of the diseases all the way to disease ecology.
I have always been fascinated by the mechanisms of disease, especially those caused by infectious agents. I obtained my DVM from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and a MSc in Wildlife Management at the University of Murcia. I have further complemented my formation in wildlife disease and pathology with different externships in Spain, UK and USA. I also completed a anatomic pathology internship with focus in zoological animals at the Barcelona Zoo and Autonomous University of Barcelona. I came to complete a PhD UC Davis with a Fulbright scholarship to improve even further my skills in the field under the supervision of Dr. Kevin Keel.
