Analysis_09_19_2017_105254I’m a PhD student of the MIBTP program of the BBSRC working at the University of Birmingham (UoB) in a multidisciplinary project lead by Dr. P. B. Rodríguez an Paco. Our aim is to develop electrochemical sensors for the detection of bacteria or their toxins in water and food. In 2014 I finished my undergraduate studies in Chemistry at the Universidad de Burgos (UBU) , where in 2015 I joined the group of Dr. Á. Colina Santamaría to complete a MSci. During my MSci I specialized in Electrochemistry whilst developing and applying spectroelectrochemical sensors for the detection of substances with biological interest, like neurotransmitters. I love nature, basketball (Real Madrid and Lakers fan), swimming and I’m TRYING to learn German.
