“Science, art and exploring the world” 




I am Spanish Swiss, I grew up in Madrid and moved to Switzerland in my teen years. I have been interested in everything related to the human body since an early age, and was always fascinated by biology during school. During my bachelors in Biology at University of Zürich I came across neuroscience and here my fascination grew even further, particularly for the more unresearched topics. In my free time I enjoy painting, meeting friends and travelling the world.
