I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a doctorate in Genetics and Cell Biology (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, 2003 and 2010). I developed my PhD project at Hospital Ramón y Cajal, Biochemistry Research Department and my postdoctoral training at IMDEA Food, where I still work. After 4 years as a postdoctoral researcher I was promoted to Junior Researcher (2015), then, I started my own research group. In 2019, I was promoted to Senior Researcher. My research interest is to describe how nutrients modulate the genome and the epigenome. As part of my thesis project, I studied how cholesterol modulates gene expression. At IMDEA Food, I continued my studies in the field of the nutritional control of the epigenome, where I contributed to describe the dietary modulation of microRNAs involved in obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. My studies in this field enormously contribute to the knowledge about the role of diet and dietary compounds on human health and pave the way for the development of new tools to prevent these diseases. Additionally, my studies have contributed to clarify if plant-derived exogenous microRNAs can be effectively absorbed from the diet and if they can effectively modulate human genes. I am a member of the PREDIMED-PLUS consortium with the role of Principal Investigator. Additionally, I did a 6-months internship at Dr. Carlos Fernández-Hernández laboratory at Yale School of Medicine. I have also some international collaborations as part od the DIMENSION Project (ERA-HDLH) and the POSITIVE Cost Action. Finally, I am Associate Professor at Universidad CEU San Pablo and member of the Steering Committee of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics.
