- I earned Cambridge Advanced Certificate in June 2008. Native Spanish and Catalan and basic French (two years coursed during 2002-2003).
- Being passionate about what I learn, and having taken courses from a wide variety of fields, motivating examples and clear teaching come out fairly easy.
Into my others section I must mention that I own a B-type car licence and I'm an sport enthusiast. I played Tennis for 7 years (which involves a great mental training in competitions), Football and Basketball ( where group skills are needed to perform well ) and swimming (where precision and accuracy are essential).
My main interest is to become a researcher while teaching for some years undergraduate Biomedical Engineering courses. In order to achieve that goal, I plan to pursue a PhD in Medicine or Biomedical sciences while collaborating with all kinds of research groups in the field. Having an entrepreneur component, I am also interested in making the most of my research results within the biomedical market.
