I am bi and I am a biotechnology student.//
I’m specialising in biomaterials & neuroscience fields because I’m about to finish a Biotechnology degree in Madrid.
Last year I pursued a cognitive neuroscience course in Italy and did an internship about the impact that a diet with high sugar and fat intake has on several tissues, such as liver damage or neurodegeneration. But now I am doing a project in Spain about the use of biomaterials (such as silk) for tissue regeneration or drug encapsulation.
When I find a bit of free time, I take part in an association to organise science dissemination events and several activities from a feminist, ecologist, antirracist & LGBT+ point of view. And I spend the rest of the time trying to survive to all of the things I said before!
