Undergraduate student at University of Granada
Spain Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research :
Other
Physical exercise and neuroscience
Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans
Data analysis and statistics
Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc)
I joined ALBA because :
I really would like to be part of this network and contribute to gender equality in science. Specifically, I would like to fight for getting that women who finished their PhD and want to continue successfully their research career, would have the same possibilities than men. I see also very important to work on the data collection of gender bias to provide objective information about gender inequalities in our field. Last but not less, I would like to learn more from people in the Alba Network and share experiences.
