I got my degree in Psychology, within the bilingual program, at Complutense University of Madrid, and I have an interuniversity master's degree in Methodology of Behavioural and Health Sciences. Currently, I am a PhD student at Complutense University of Madrid. I develop my work at the Laboratory of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience (LNCyC). My current formation as  a student researcher is possible thanks to a PhD scholarship, granted by the Spanish Government (Formación de Profesorado Universitario; FPU).

I have been colaborating at the LNCyC since my third year in college, in projects related with the initial phases and progression of Alzheimer's Disease (AD), specifically in the field of electrophysiological biomarkers via magnetoencephalography (MEG). In my thesis, I continue this research line, studying functional connectivity patterns in asymptomatic, young relatives of patients of AD. More specifically, I am analysing the connectivity patterns that are active during the performance of a visual memory task. This work is part of a longitudinal study which strives to follow the same subjects from an early age, to discover predictive biomarkers that can be identified years before the onset of the symptoms.
