Personal profile

Research interests

I finished my Psychology Degree in 1990 and I defended my PhD thesis, supervised by Drs. Ignacio Morgado and Margarita Martí, in 1993 at the UAB.  I did postdoctoral stays at the University of Sevilla (1998), the University of California in San Francisco (2001-2002; 2005-2006) and at the Institute of Biomedical Research of Barcelona (2000-2001). In 2017 I received a Fulbright scholarship for stays abroad that allowed me to work in the laboratory of Dr LeDoux at New York University (USA). Since 2011, I am the principal investigator of a research group that has as its main objective to investigate from a cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach the brain mechanisms associated with the cognitive decline observed during aging. I have participated in various university management positions: vice-dean of the UAB Faculty of Psychology, member of the management board of the Neuroscience Institute (UAB) and currently I am the coordinator of the Neuroscience Doctorate Program at the UAB Neuroscience Institute, which has obtained the prestigious Mention of Excellence from the Ministry of Education
