I graduated in Psychology (1994) and completed a PhD in Cognitive Science and Language (1999) at Universitat de Barcelona. During my PhD I worked at the University of Oxford (UK), where I stayed for a postdoctoral period before moving to University of British Columbia (Canada) in 2000. I returned to Spain as a Ramón y Cajal research fellow in 2002, 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 Universitat Pompeu Fabra, where I combine research and teaching as one of the group leaders of the Center for Brain and Cognition (CBC). In 2010 I received an ERC Starting Grant. Currently, the MRG group works on basic and applied research projects supported by national (MINECO, AGAUR, BBVA Foundation) and international EU (ERC, BIAL) funding sources.
