I started studying physics at the University of the Basque Country (EHU/UPV). When I reached the second year, I realized that my passion was the applied science and changed my career.
In February of 2019 I was graduated in Chemical Engineering by the University of the Basque Country (EHU/UPV). Then I specialized in advanced materials by studying the Advanced Material Engineering Master in the Engineering School of Bilbao (EHU/UPV).



In 2017 I did a 4 months internship at the Materials Physics Center in Donostia/San Sebastián under the supervision of Prof. Josetxo Pomposo and Dr. Edurne Gonzalez. In that period, I synthesized polymers and polymeric nanoparticles.
From June 2018 to July 2019, I worked in Tekniker, under the supervision of Dr. Estibaliz Aranzabe. Here my job was centered in the field of dispersion and stabilization of different types of nanoparticles in heat transfer fluids for its application in storage systems.
Since July 2020 I am a member of the nanoPAT Project in POLYMAT under the supervision of Prof. Jose Ramón Leiza and Prof. Maria Paulis, where I am working on a real time monitorization system of the size of polymeric nanoparticles during their formation in the reactor, from laboratory to industrial scale.
