About us


Country: Spain
Languages: English, Spanish, Catalan
Research interests: intrinsically disordered proteins, NMR methodology, drug discovery, solvent effects, liquid-liquid phase separation
Research overview: I am interested in the study of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) using biophysical methods, mainly NMR spectroscopy. I am particularly interested in the development of tailored NMR experiments for challenging systems. My current research focuses on the understanding of the conformational propensities of IDPs and how these preferential structural elements can be used for the therapeutic target of these targets.
