I grew up in a city near Barcelona and did my Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Barcelona. For my Bachelor’s thesis, I moved to Tübingen for a semester to work in tumor immunology and cytokine-induced senescence. I went back to sunny Barcelona to do a Master’s degree in Immunology and did my Master’s thesis in a Translational research group working on psoriasis. I then decided to go abroad for my PhD studies. In 2016 I joined the group of Prof. Schelhaas in not-so-sunny Münster. I am currently studying the interaction of HPV with glycans on the cell surface and their role in structural activation of the virus. My project is part of the ViroCarb initiative, in which research groups from different German universities collaborate to understand the role of glycans in infection of non-enveloped viruses.
