Información general
Presentación
  • In February 2023 I started as Assistant Professor at the URJC, where I have been developing my research as an indepent researcher since 2018. I combine nutritional, physiological, neurobiological and computational tools with behavioral experiments to understand the adaptations of individuals to group living.

    I have performed my research activity in Spain, France and the U.S.A in the following lines:

    1) Neurobiology of invertebrates: neural codes and their adaptation in sensory neurons, dynamic-clump methods and neural regeneration;

    2) Decision-making and collective behavior: use of social information in fish and ants, and development of automatic tracking system for videos of groups of animals moving;

    3) Insect nutrition: Nutrition, longevity and behavior in ants and termites;

    4) Miniaturized brains: Cognition and brain anatomy and metabolism in ants;

    5) Immune system in social insects: Study of the interrelation between nutrition, behavior and immune system in ant societies.

    These different research lines have provided me with a diverse skill set from electrophysiological technics to neuroethological or nutritional tools, that I have used 
    16 research projects  (4 as PI and 2 as coordinator of person under contract). My contributions to the generation of knowledge in these fields are reflected in my publications (in journals such as PNAS or Animal Behaviour) and obtained grants and awards (such as aMarie Sk¿odowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, or an Aid for Talent Attraction-CM, Modality I). 

    I have supervised the research activity of postdocs, techniciant and predoctoral and undergraduate students and I have taucht in bachelor's and master's degree courses in Spain, France and USA. I participate in outreach activites such as workshops for schools, science fairs and exhibitions and I have translated around 30 articles for the recently disappeared "Investigación y Ciencia" journal. I commontly review scientific studies or projects (for journals such scientific journals or state agencies).

    I have made international research stays in UK, USA and France, of variable duration, from 6 weeks to 3 years.
