In 2007, I became a Master student in Agro-food Science and Technology at UVIGO. I started my PhD funded by regional government (Galicia, Spain) via pre-doctoral fellowship. My PhD was focused on the study of environmentally-friendly processes for the second generation bioethanol production. During my PhD, I had the opportunity to stay for 2 months at CIEMAT (Madrid). In 2011, I received my PhD degree by UVIGO with qualification of Sobresaliente cum laude being awarded with Extraordinary Prize. In 2012, I started my Post-Doc research funded by FCT individual fellowship (Portugal) at the Centre of Biological Engineering, UMINHO (2012-2015). In 2015, I obtained a postdoctoral fellowship granted by regional government (Galicia, Spain).

My scientific production is summarized in: 21 peer-reviews SCI papers 19 of them ranked in Q1 (10 as first author and 9 as second author), 2 non-SCI papers, and 32 contributions to international conferences (4 oral presentations). My current h-index is 9 (according to Scopus).
