I recently moved from the University of Warwick to the University of the Balearic Islands (2019) as a Ramon y Cajal - an extremely competitive tenure track fellowship programme to attract talent in Spain. I have been an Independent Group Leader since 2013. In 2015 the University of Warwick (i.e. ranked among the ten best universities in the UK and in the top 100 across the world according to QS) offered me a position as an Assistant Professor based on my outstanding scientific trajectory. Throughout my career I have been externally funded through competitively won fellowships (Areces Foundation Fellowship, IEF Marie Curie Research Fellowship, NERC Independent Research Fellowship and, now, a Ramon y Cajal) demonstrating my ability not only to put forward original research ideas but also my capacity for managing my own research projects and generating outputs of high impact in the form of publications (see figure above). As a pro-active group leader, I have gained management skills through the development of my own vibrant research group, with eleven PhD students, a research technician and two postdocs. During my three main international career moves (i.e. Spain-France, France-UK, UK-Spain), I have developed a network of interdisciplinary and international collaborators.

My laboratory has two main lines of work in marine molecular ecology:

- Line 1: Marine microbial interactions - nutrient cycling and microbial evolution.

- Line 2: Ecology and biodegradation of marine plastic.
