    My principal research interest is the development of high resolution mass spectrometry techniques for environmental monitoring.


    I obtained my degree in Chemistry in 2012 from the University of Oviedo (Spain), where I specialised in Analytical Chemistry. At the same university, I undertook an MsC in Analytical and Bioanalytical Sciences, focussing in Mass Spectrometry. After working in industry for several years, I moved to the University of Birmingham after being awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship to work on developing hardware and applications for Proton Transfer Reaction-Mass Spectrometry for explosives detection, under the supervision of Professor Chris Mayhew. In 2017 I obtained my PhD in Molecular Physics on the topic of “Development and applications of Proton Transfer Reaction-Mass Spectrometry for Homeland Security: trace detection of explosives”, followed by a postdoctoral position in the same group for further 6 months and as an Honorary Researcher ever since. After that, I took a position in the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience - Coventry University, where I led the setting-up of the laboratory suite for the Research Centre, with emphasis in organic high-resolution mass spectrometry and inorganic mass spectrometry. During the last two years, I have been focussing in the implementation, development and expansion of the mass spectrometry facilities to help establishing a cutting-edge research service for environmental monitoring. My current role consists on leading and managing all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the laboratory, whilst developing mass spectrometry applications and methods for environmental monitoring. This specifically involves development and optimisation of both targeted and untargeted high-resolution mass spectrometry methodologies for the analysis of small molecules.
