Hey there! I am Alba, an extroverted, pro-active and optimistic woman from the Mediterranean city of Badalona (next to Barcelona). I studied Pharmacy and Biomedicine, and then embarked myself into a PhD, which was the beginning of my scientific research career. At present, I am a postdoctoral research fellow. I (still) want to understand metabolic diseases such as obesity-related type 2 diabetes, and concretely, the impact of lifestyle (i.e. diet and exercise). I have acquired both wet-lab and computational basic skills, while working with cellular and animal models. I enjoy working in an international and enriching environment.

I try to speak Danish, I love to travel, and I found out I also love mitochondria.
