In 2016, I got an Assistantship Grant funded by Banco Santander linked to the Biomechanics and Ergonomics for Health and Sports Research group, under the supervisión of Prof. José M. Heredia . In 2017, I got a contract as Research Technical Staff funded by the European Social Fund in the ActiveBrains Project at the PROFITH Research Group. Interested in the effects of exercise on bone health in children with obesity, I started the PhD studies in Biomedicine under the supervision of Profs. Francisco B. Ortega and Luis Gracia Marco. My Doctoral Thesis examined the bone-adiposity crosstalk in children with obesity. Moreover, I did a research stay in the University of Clermont Auvergne where I had the opportunity to investigate the bone-adiposity crosstalk in adults with obesity and learn cutting-edge technologies in 3-dimensional bone assessment, under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Courteix . My Thesis obtained the maximum qualification, Excellent Cum Laude, and the International Mention. During the predoctoral and postdoctoral periods, I worked for the iBoneFIT project (reg: ISRCTN61195625) led by Prof. Luis Gracia Marco and funded by La Caixa Foundation. This project contains two studies that aim at improving bone health in survivors of childhood cancer. My role with the study 1 consisted in drafting the study protocol, performing the participants’ assessments, developing an online exercise program and providing adherence strategies to prevent participants’ withdrawal. In 2021, the study 1 was funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation to investigate some key and novel bone metabolism markers, and I am responsible of managing, preparing and storaging the participants’ blood samples. I have published 18 JCR articles (7 as first author, >70% in first quartile) and 2 book chapters  since 2016. According to Web of Science, these publications were cited 101 times (h-index=7). It is worth highlighting my participation in scientific conferences and informative talks about exercise, bone and cancer such as the European Congress of Sport Science, the Congress of the Spanish Society of Bone Research and Mineral Metabolism and the European Researchers Night. Currently, I work as Lecturer in the Universidad Loyola Andalucía. Moreover, I am developing the physical activity module inside of an mHealth intervention led by Prof. Emma Motrico and funded by the European Research Council.
