I did my degree in Mathematics and a master in Applied Mathematics in the FME (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, UPC). In 2013 I defended my PhD Thesis at COMBGRAPH (UPC) under the supervision of Oriol Serra. I had the opportunity to be a CARP Postdoc Fellow at School of Computer Science, at Mcgill University, where I enjoyed my days working with Bruce Reed and Louigi Addario-Berry. After a short period as a Research Fellow, in January 2016 I became a Lecturer in the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham.

My main interests are in Probabilistic and Extremal Combinatorics, Random Combinatorial Structures and the analysis of Randomized Algorithms.
