I trained as a neurologist at this hospital, and developed my phD research at the Institute of Neurology in London. Having returned to the Vall d'Hebron in 2007, I reached the consultant category in 2013. I perform clinical duties that I combine with research tasks, especially in neuroimaging, while maintaining an international profile within the scientific community in my field.
