I was born in Barcelona. I graduated in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Barcelona (UB) in 1990. I have been a specialist in gynaecology and obstetrics since 1996. In my beginnings in the world of reproduction, I did a training stay in Reproductive Medicine-Clinic Classroom, at the Clínic Hospital in Barcelona.
Currently, I am a gynaecology care coordinator at the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona. Head of the Reproductive Medicine and Gynaecological Endocrinology Unit and the Childhood and Adolescence Gynaecology Unit.
My areas of special interest are reproductive medicine, fertility preservation, which we pioneered in Spain in 2000, and gynaecology in childhood and adolescence.
I am a lecturer in three prestigious Master’s Degrees, the International One in Human Reproductive Medicine at the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, Breast Pathology Senology at the Universitat de Barcelona and Endocrinology of the child and adolescent also at the Universitat de Barcelona.
Since I became a specialist, I have tried to link up with the main scientific societies, both Catalan and national, with the aim of doing my bit for human reproduction, forming part of the different opinion groups and collaborating in the preparation of consensus documents and review articles. Since its foundation I have been a member of the Gynaecological Endocrinology Group of the Catalan Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (Societat Catalana d’Obstetricia i Ginecologia). I was a member of the Gynaecological Endocrinology Interest Group of the Spanish Fertility Society until 2011, and I am currently a member of the Fertility Preservation Interest Group. In 2014, we decided to take on the challenge of organising the XXX National Congress of the Spanish Fertility Society. It was an unforgettable experience, sharing the organisation of the congress with excellent professionals and even better friends. It was a huge success.
