Biosketch

Siempre me han fascinado los seres humanos. Por eso estudié psicología y me interesé especialmente por la investigación básica. Como miembro del grupo de investigación Evolución y Cognición Humana (EvoCog, asociado al IFISC. UIB-CSIC) he participado en diversos proyectos para estudiar los rasgos que caracterizan a la especie humana.

Áreas principales de investigación: Neuroestética
