I am a recognized researcher in the study of metabolic diseases, especially in relation to the gut microbiota, with a profound expertise in molecular and bioinformatics approaches, as well as the use of animal models. I conducted my PhD Thesis at Universidad de las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC, 2007-2011). I defended my thesis with honors in 2011. I obtained the Special Mention Award of the University in Health Sciences. My thesis was reached under the European Doctorate basis, after spending a 4 months research stay (1 month in 2008 and 3 months in 2009) in the Oxford University (United Kingdom) and a 6 months research stay at University of Pennsylvania (USA, 2011), studying the physiological basis of the complement system. After that, I obtained an associated professor position at Universidad Internacional de la Rioja (UNIR, 2011-2014). I was combining this position intermittently with another as a researcher, first at Instituto Tecnológico Agroalimentario de Extremadura (INTAEX, 2012) and then with a Postdoctoral contract Sara Borrell (ISCIII) in Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas de Málaga ( IBIMA, 2013-2016). During the last year (2015), I spent 7 months at the Copenhagen University (Denmark), conducting an experimental study on the effect of diet on the gut microbiota establishment in gnotobiotic mice. Currently, I have active collaborations with researchers from different national and international institutions . In addition, I am a researcher of the CIBERObn research network, to study the physiopathology of obesity and its complications. During my whole career, I have maintained an excellent record of publications, improving the quality and the metrics especially during the last years of my postdoctoral period. I am inventor of two patents and I am currently supervising three PhD students. Finally, I am referee for different SCI journals and associated editor of a SCI journal. I was referee of one scientific project for an international agency.
