Some guy from a job I once applied to

I'm originally from Badajoz, Spain, close to Portugal in the south-west, where I studied Biology at the University. Those were some sweet years including very nice memories from the year I spent as an Erasmus student in Montpellier, France, and one more year in Tenerife (Canary Islands).

But then I grew an interest in computers and programming and not just Biology so I moved to Madrid to study a Master's program in Bioinformatics combining these two passions I had (and still have). In Madrid I started working in several research projects at UCM (Universidad Complutense Madrid) and the National Center for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC). After a few years I had published some results and decided to compile everything into a thesis and got my PhD degree in January 2016.

Madrid is lovely and lively but after over 10 years living there I decided to experience a new stage in my life as a post-doc abroad. Stockholm is my place of residence now and I love it too. It's not as lively as Madrid, but fresher and prettier in my opinion.

In my spare time I'm an avid reader, traveller, scuba diver and trumpet player.

As the quote above says, I'm not very active on social media but here is a list of links to me in some of them:
