Academy

Despite sports being crucial to my life, I graduated in Biochemistry at the “Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona” in 2019. Even though everything that I was studying actually interested me, I didn’t see myself within one of the usual Biochemistry career options. Sports kept drawing my attention and I started seeing a connection between them and what I was learning at College.

Then I decided to study the 4th year of my Bachelor’s degree abroad at the University of Montana (Missoula, MT) to immerse myself into the exercise science field. Being fascinated by everything I learnt there, I currently keep updating my knowledge autonomously by reading papers and following the expert’s activity in the field.

Leisure

Ever since I was a little kid, I have been involved in sport. From Taekwondo to Trail Running (my main discipline and what I currently enjoy the most), I have gone through different disciplines, some competitively and others noncompetitively. However, since I first tried an endurance discipline, I am delighted by its demands and its rewards.

Running and/or cycling as long as possible, for as many days in a row as possible, going through as many places as possible, and enjoying as many landscapes as possible is currently my main athletic goal.
