Role: Research Technician Email:


I have an academic background in Biological Sciences and biomedical biotechnology having trained at University of Valencia and Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain), where I also carried out my Master’s project in Hydrodynamic Gene Therapy field. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the laboratory as a Masters Student and was delighted to take up a post as a Research Technician at the University of Valencia at the end of 2015.

In May 2016 I joined the Newcastle Fibrosis Research Group as a Research Technician working on the identification of metabolic or clinical markers that are associated with and/or predict fast progression in the fibrosis disease by applying genetic, transcriptomic and epigenetic profiling technologies to human liver fibrosis biopsies.

Currently, I am in my first year as a staff PhD student. Therefore, a part from carry on with the human liver biopsies project, my PhD project seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the epigenetic adaptation to hepatic would healing in response to an environmental insult; whether this adaptive mechanism is transient or it persists through the lifetime of the adapted animal; and whether ancestral liver damage leads to heritable reprogramming of hepatic wound healing via female lineage.
