Personal profile

Research interests

I’m a PhD candidate with a profound interest in the human experience. Working in the Stress-in-Action project, my research will contribute to: (a) developing an evidence-based theoretical framework of daily life stress, (b) determining how daily life stress can be reliably measured and intervened on, and (c) determining when and how stress responses turn into detrimental effects on health.

I have a background in Neurosciences and Philosophy of Neuroscience, two master's I completed at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My main research focused on well-being from a network science perspective. I explored the conceptual and normative implications of personalized mental healthcare and found that (a) well-being traits (e.g., optimism, satisfaction, social well-being) can be modelled as a network and (b) network models of the mind can be a useful tool for increasing self-understanding and to improve the doctor-patient relationship.

I also have knowledge of human biology and experience in a laboratory setting due to my bachelor's degree in Biochemistry (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) and my internship at the CNCR (Center for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research).
