To sum up, I studied Biological Sciences at University of Valencia and continued there to complete my Master and PhD in Biodiversity: Conservation and Evolution. In my PhD I obtained the qualification “cum laude”, finishing it in September 2013. I was awarded the Special Doctorate Award on Natural Sciences at the University of Valencia in June 2015, and the Swiss Entomological Society Award in March 2015 for my Thesis on Biodiversity, taxonomy and ecology of parasitoids wasps (Hymenoptera: Braconidae). In October 2014, I joined Syngenta Crop Protection Basel in the Global Insecticide Development group, to manage Insect Resistance Modeling, Technical Support Specialist, and Logistics Assistant for global insecticide, herbicide and fungicide field trial management. Currently, I am working as Technical Support Manager on Global Disease Control team.
