I obtained my PhD in chemistry in 2005 from the UAB. Part of my doctoral research was conducted at the publicly run AgResearch (New Zealand) and at the University of Ioannina (Greece). I conducted postdoctoral research on biosensors for mycotoxins detection at the University of Perpignan (UPVD) (2005–07). My research involved short stays at LISE (CNRS), University Marie et Pierre Curie, and at the International Center of Biodynamics (Romania). In 2007, I started a 15-month Japan Society for the Promotion of Science fellowship at the Tokyo University of Technology. Then, I returned to the UPVD prior to starting a Juan de la Cierva fellowship at IBEC. In 2012, I joined the University of South Australia as a research associate, where one year later I won a Senior Research Fellowship. After four years, I joined Monash University as Senior Research Fellow. In 2018 I moved to the URV as Ramón y Cajal Fellow.
