About me

  • In September 2023, I joined the research group of Erika Laukka at Karolinska Institutet as a postdoctoral researcher. I use olfactory, cognitive, and multimodal imaging data to investigate healthy and pathological aging and the long-term effects of COVID-19.


  • Previously, I obtained a doctoral degree in Experimental and Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Barcelona in October 2022. My doctoral studies were focused on the impact of sleep disturbances and biological sex on Parkinson's disease brain atrophy and cognitive phenotypes. During that period, between January and July 2022, I had the opportunity to join the research group of Daniel Ferreira at Karolinska Institutet as a visiting PhD student, collaborating on ongoing projects in dementia with Lewy bodies.


  • Between November 2022 and August 2023, I held a position as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Barcelona, exploring brain-cognition relationships in the preclinical stages of Parkinson's disease.
