I'm a Marie Curie Fellow at LaCàN in the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), and a visiting scholar at the Shefelbine Lab in Northeastern University. In Boston, I'm working closely with developmental biologists to elucidate the mechanobiology of joint morphogenesis. I recently won a Serra-Húnter Assistant Professor position at the Aerospace Engineering group in the Department of Physics of the UPC. I look forward to joining the group in May 2021. There, I plan on applying my knowledge in solid mechanics and advanced material modelling to the computational study of biomimetic materials and structures for aerospace applications.
