|Biography:||I received my BS in Biology from Universitat de Girona (Girona, Spain), and my MS in Biology from Universitat de Barcelona (Barcelona, Spain). I also did my PhD in Spain (CSIC, Barcelona, Spain), studying the presence of POPs and their endocrine-disrupting activity in European high mountain lakes. After that, I did a postdoc at the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL, USA). My research focused on the effects of endocrine disruptors on several fish species. I then joined Jackson State University (Jackson, MS), as an assistant research professor. Finally, in 2011 I joined IGBB, where I continue my work in predictive ecotoxicology.|
|Research Interest: ||My research focuses on environmental pollutants and their effects on aquatic species while trying to elucidate their mechanisms of action using ecotoxicogenomics and a systems biology approach. I am also very interested in the development of alternative species for toxicity testing.|
|Hobbies:||I love traveling, good music, good company, good food and good wine. I also volunteer for Paws Rescue, a local pet rescue organization, helping them whenever possible and being a proud foster mom.|
