I'm from Barcelona. In 2013, I graduated in Mathematics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and then I moved to the University of Bath for my MSc, where I specialised in Mathematical Biology. Following this, I went back home and I undertook a PhD in Applied Mathematics at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM). My PhD thesis focused on stochastic modelling of epigenetic regulation and its implications for cellular plasticity. Since September 2018, I'm a Postdoctoral researcher in the QSCB lab, where I'm trying to understand from a theoretical perspective cell fate decisions occurring in early development.
More globally, I love applying mathematics to biological questions, specially those with an impact on people’s health. I love teaching and helping others, and trying to show that mathematics are not as scary as people feel :)
I also believe in the sandpile model: small contributions, can make a huge difference. So, let's try it, right?
In the lab
Nuria joined the QCB lab in Sept 2019. She loves applying Mathematics to biological questions, specially those with an impact on people’s health. In the QCB lab, Nuria will be trying to understand from a theoretical perspective spatial and temporal control during cell cycle remodelling and cell fate decisions, using single cell data. Nuria has a passion for teaching and feels happy when able to help to others. She will soon be taking part of many of the teaching and outreach opportunities the Crick Institute offers.
Outside the lab
Nuria loves swimming (which she does every day), listening to music and enjoys watching sports. She is a FC Barcelona football supporter.
