Brief Bio: I did my PhD at the University of Oviedo under the supervision of Dr. María Jesús Cañal and Dr. Luis Valledor. During my PhD, I studied the response and adaptation of the tree species Pinus radiata to UV radiation from a systems biology perspective. In 2016, upon graduation, I started as a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Saijaliisa Kangasjärvi´s group at the University of Turku, where I have been funded by the Academy of Finland since 2019. I study the role of post-translational regulation in retrograde signalling and its importance for stress adaptation.
