Brief CV: I started in the field of nutritional epidemiology in 2007 performing tasks of database creation, management and data analysis of EPINUT-UMH studies. In 2011 I defended my doctoral thesis on “Folate intake and use of folic acid supplements during pregnancy and its effect on fetal growth” in the INMA study. At the end of 2011 I started as a postdoctoral research associate working actively in these two lines of research: a) the effects of high intakes of folic acid during pregnancy and the effects on the health of children after birth within the INMA study and b) the influence of dietary patterns a priori and posteriori in childhood obesity. I have published more than 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals since 2010 (65% in the 25th percentile): including 7 articles as the first author, 6 articles as author of correspondence and 1 article as the last author (in the first quartile) reaching a total of 865 citations and an H index of 15 according to SCOPUS. I have also participated in 9 research projects in competitive public calls (5 national and 3 regional as collaborating researcher and 1 as principal investigator of the Marató TV3: 201622 10). I participate as a researcher in the INMA study, PREDIMED-PLUS, Mammographic Density Determinants and in European research consortia such as: Global Burden of Disease and Metabolic Risk Factors of Chronic Diseases Collaborating Group, Global network of clinical and public health researchers for the study of the main risk factors and diseases worldwide (Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension), in the EU initiative DEDIPAC-Joint Programming Initiative “A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life” and the Stomach cancer Pooling (StoP) project. I have done several post-doctoral stays at Imperial College (3 months), Oporto Public Health Institute (1.5 months) and at the University of Navarra (0.5 months).
