I did my fourth year at the Faculté d’Ingénierie Biologique, Agronomique et Environnementale, Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium. After this, I did my Master in Plant and Forest Biotechnology, followed by a PhD in Biotechnology and Genetic Resources of Plants and Associated Microorganisms in the Centre for Plant Biotechnology and Genomics (CBGP), Madrid, Spain. During my PhD I did an internship in the Institute for Genome Sciences, University of Maryland, Baltimore, USA. I am currently working in the Department of Plant Sciences as a postdoctoral researcher in the rhizosphere laboratory.
