We welcome talent, We train leaders, We are fair, balanced & inclusive.


I am a physician-scientist from Santander, Spain. The USA is my home. As an internist, neurologist and neuro-intensivist my research is dedicated to the study of neurological disorders in the critical care setting. I am happily married to a virologist from Taiwan. We have two beautiful kids whose grandparents visit us every summer. I am committed to promoting the neurosciences and welcome people who share my passion to join our pursuit.
