My current research focuses the transdermal delivery of drugs from topical formulations and evaluation of penetration enhancement technologies. Furthermore, I am responsible of the mass spectrometry laboratory. In this position, I worked with top pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies in the research and development of formulations and technologies to enhance the transdermal absorption and/or deposition of a wide range of compounds.         

In my thesis “In vitro transdermal absorption studies of pizotifen and paliperidone” (2008-2012; University Cardenal Herrera CEU, Spain), I studied the use of chemical enhancers, cyclodextrins, iontophoresis and laser microporation, the development of transdermal delivery systems and their chemical and physical characterization. Furthermore, I worked with pharmacokinetic models to predict the skin delivery of different molecules. I completed the thesis in November 2013 with the highest level of honor summa cum laude and received the extraordinary doctorate award. During this period, I collaborated in the evaluation of cosmetic products, including assessment of the active penetration and its effects on the skin using techniques such as TEWL; furthermore, I supervised the research work of Master and Pharmacy students and was involved in teaching for veterinary, pharmacy and nursing.           I consider myself as practical, creative, team-making and with excellent problem-solving skills.
