I am post-doc researcher in Utrecht University and also a teacher in The Gambia University. I teach dutch and gambian students and I see a big difference in motivation between them.

I am originally from Barcelona, Spain. I got my PhD in Sweden and I went to The Gambia to teach after that.

I love research specially when I think it can be useful for humankind. In our laboratory we work with bacterial disease, viruses, cancer, etc.

I am a member of different NGOs. I would like to use chemistry to improve the world.. maybe a dream, but nevertheless here I am and that's what I do.
