I undertook my undergraduate studies in Chemistry at Universidad de Santiago de Compostela (USC) from 2004-2009. I remained at USC to complete a PhD funded by a FPU fellowship under the supervision of Prof. José L. Mascareñas from 2009-2014. My research was focus on the study of supramolecular chemistry of DNA-protein interactions. After finishing my PhD, I moved to University of Cambridge in January 2015 to take up a Ramon Areces Fellowship in the group of Prof. J. R. Nitschke where I worked 2 year on the creation of complex metallo-supramolecular architectures. Subsequently, I moved to San Sebastián in February 2017 to take up a Juan de la Cierva Fellowship in the group of Prof. Luis M. Liz-Marzán (CICbiomaGUNE). During this time, I worked on coloidal chemistry; mainly designing strategies to control the cell internalization of plasmonic nanoparticles, and developing synthesis of chiral gold nanoparticles. Since February 2019, I am a Marie Curie fellow at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the group of Prof. Bert Meijer, where I am designing synthetic extracellular matrix based on supramolecuar polymers for stem cell expansion towards organoids.
