I grew up in Spain. I got my undergraduate degree in geology from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and my PhD from Virginia Tech. I completed a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship at ETH Zurich and worked for two years at University of Arizona. I am currently an assistant professor at the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences department at University of Alberta.
