I have a BSc in Human Biology and an MSc in Biomedical Research from the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. I first came to Cambridge for 6 months to carry out the research project for my MSc, which I did at the neuronal oscillations group (NOG) under the supervision of Professor Ole Paulsen at University of Cambridge. After obtaining a Michael Foster scholarship in physiology, I stayed in Professor Paulsen’s laboratory for 3 more years to complete a PhD. During my time in the NOG I studied the mechanisms of long-term depression in the mouse barrel cortex in vitro and in vivo using a combination of whole-cell patch clamp and optogenetics. I have recently joined the Tripodi lab and my aim is to study the sensory-to-motor transformation during goal-oriented behaviour at a single cell level using a combination of molecular tools, electrophysiology and imaging in vivo.
