In my research career I have specialised in plant breeding of cereals, such as maize and rice. Currently, from the Applied Plant Biotechnology group at Agrotecnio, I participate in two European projects and in one of the Generalitat de Catalunya related to the genetic edition of plants and the production of pharmacological products derived from them (molecular farming).
