I obtained a BA in Psychology at the Universitat de Barcelona (1994), and completed a PhD in Cognitive Science and Language (1999) in the same university. Thereafter, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universities of Oxford (UK) and University of British Columbia (Canada). In 2002 I returned to Spain with a "Ramón y Cajal" research fellowship, and started a research group at Universitat de Barcelona, and in 2005 I became ICREA Research Professor and established the Multisensory Research Group at the Parc Científic de Barcelona thanks to public and private funding. Since 2009, I am based at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, where I combine research and teaching as one of the group leaders at the Center for Brain and Cognition. In 2010 I received an individual Starting Grant from the ERC. Currently, the MRG group works on basic and applied research projects supported by local (MINECO, AGAUR) and EU (ERC) funding agencies.
