Current research

I am a PhD student in the University of Cádiz (UCA), currently working as a researcher trainee in genetics and genomics applied to aquaculture. My master’s research project focused on Solea senegalensis, studying potential microRNAs. Now, my work focuses on understanding reproduction in this species. Due to my previous experience, I aim to learn as much as possible about bioinformatics but also new experimental techniques, as lab work will always remain as one of my interests.


Favourite aquaculture species

European Sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax).
