Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow
I received a degree in Chemical Engineering in January 2001 from University of Santiago de Compostela (USC), and started my Master studies in the Environmental Engineering and Bioprocesses Group (BioGroup) at USC. In 2002 I got the FPI fellowship from the Spanish Government to perform my doctoral thesis, which was defended in March 2007. In September 2007 I got a Postdoctoral grant from the Spanish Government to perform a two-year research stay in the BioEngineering Research Group (BERG), in the Institute for Biotechnology and Bioengineering, Lisbon. Afterwards, I returned to the BioGroup with a three-year Postdoctoral grant from Xunta de Galicia, which allowed me to combine research activities with university teaching. In December 2013 I was granted with another Postdoctoral fellowship from Xunta de Galicia to continue my research at the Dep. of Chemical Engineering from USC. In 2015 I was awarded as principal investigator of a project in the “Proyectos I+D+i jóvenes investigadores” program (Mineco) and I am also principal investigator of an ERA-IB2 project, involving 4 different institutions in the European Union.
