I have a wide background in mass spectrometry, biotechnology, microbiology and metabolomics
I held my PhD in the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (UPCT) under the supervision of Professor Aguayo expert in plant biotechnology and food microbiology and safety and Dr. Ángel Gil Izquierdo expert in metabolomics, food chemistry and oxidative stress biomarkers.
My PhD defended in 2016 has been based in biomarkers of oxidative stress in plants when I used a new methodology based to the identification and quantification of these bio compounds in UHPLC-QqQ-MS/MS.
Despite that I was working in a full time company, my notorious results have been the first ever published about these compounds in almonds and nuts. During PhD I published three papers in prestigious journals listed on the first quartile of the journal citation reports and presented main results in four national and international conferences.
