I got my Bachelor's degree in Biology at University of Oviedo (Spain) in 2013, as well as my Master's degree in Plant Biotechnology Applied to the Conservation and Sustainable Management of Resources in 2014. I started my PhD studies in August 2015 in Molecular Plant Biology in Saijaliisa Kangasjärvi’s group. From Jun 2017 to Dic 2019, I have a Doctoral Programme Molecular Life of Science (DPMLS) Grant School.
