I am a researcher at the Analysis Grup (from Bioinformatics' Unit) from the Centre Nacional d’Anàlisi Genòmica (CNAG-CRG). I mainly work as a data and software engineer developing new software and improving our existing pipelines for genomic and genomic-related data analyses. I am also a collaborator directing master thesis from the MSc. in Bioinformatics & Biostatitics at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.
Before working at the Centre Nacional d’Anàlisi Genòmica, my research interests included the study of the relations between environmental factors and internal omic perturbations and development of applications to integrate multiple layers of molecular data. I have previously been at the Computational Health Informatics Program, located at Boston Children’s Hospital, and the Pediatrics Department of the Harvard Medical School as a research fellow elucidating the relationship between environmental factors and autism severity. Earlier, I performed my Ph.D. thesis at the Bioinformatic Research Group in Epidemiology from Barcelona Institute for Global Health, as well at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, depicting the impact of ultraviolet light (UV-A + UV-B) on human health, as well as working as a bioinformatic analyst studying the impact of multiple environmental factors on human internal molecular signatures (also known as omic data, including genome, methylome, transcriptome, proteome, and metabolome) within the framework of HELIX | Building the early life exposome.
Former turning into research, I studied my BSc. Computer Engineering at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, as well as my MSc. in Bioinformatics, and worked as a computer engineer and as a software developer elsewhere.
