Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Industrial PhD student at the Institute for the History of Science (IHC, UAB) in collaboration with Grifols S.A. My current research focuses on the rise and industrialization of haematology and haemotherapy in Barcelona, between 1909 and 1950. Through the Grifols Historical Archive, I study how a modest homeopathic laboratory from Barcelona transformed into a global pharmaceutical company based on the plasma-derived industry, creating the first private blood bank in Spain. I am particularly interested in examining how the new technoscientific practices of the early twentieth century, first, and the new industrial patterns of mid-century capitalism, later, changed the scientific manipulation of blood, also transforming its production, use and cultural significance. Finally, I investigate the controversies appeared with the commodification of blood in this specific urban context.

I hold a BSc in Physics from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB, 2013), minor in Fundamental Physics. I received a MSc in Astrophysics, Particle Physics and Cosmology from the Universitat de Barcelona (UB, 2015), specialisation in Space sciences; and a MA in History of Science: Science, History and Society from both universities (UAB-UB, 2015), research-oriented specialisation.
