About me

I completed my training as a neurologist at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona (2000) and my PhD degree on Biopathology in Medicine at the University of Barcelona (UB) (2003). After this, I obtained a Rio Hortega fellowship (ISCIII, Spanish Ministry of Health) in Behavioural neurology at IDIBAPS. I accomplished a short-term postdoctoral scholarship at the Memory and Aging Center- University of California San Francisco, directed by Dr. Bruce Miller (2006). Back in Barcelona, I became the Group Leader of the Alzheimer’s Disease and other Cognitive Disorders group at the IDIBAPS and Associate professor at the UB (2018). Currently, I am the Head of the Neurology Service at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona.
