I joined the Laboratory of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience in 2010 after finishing my Degree in Psychology and my MsC in Neuroscience. I have worked in the field of the early detection of Alzheimer´s Disease, more concretely in the characterization of Subjective Cognitive Decline (SCD). Afterwards I obtained a post-doc grant from the Juan de la Cierva program (Spanish Ministry of Science) in the UAM during 2020. I am currently an Assistant Lecturer at the UCM in the Department of Psychobiology.

Other research interests

Clinical neuroscience

Our research line focuses on cortical oscillations and brain functional connectivity in neuropsychiatric disorders, such as epilepsy, stroke, psychosis and autism
