I was born in Estepona, a coast town in the south of Spain. Once I finished the basic school, I moved to Granada to study the degree of Physics at the University of Granada. I discovered the power of science and the reason of this power: Science rests on being critical with everything. It doesn't matter how much do you like an idea/hypothesis. You have to step back, cloth skeptical, and try to falsify them with all your power. If it remains then you can say that your hyphotesis is true as far as it has been tested. However, the door for discard or modify it if new evidence is found never is closed. People with new or modified ideas will arrive, they will test them and they will improve the global knowledge bagage.
In my way of trying to understand the world I live, I discovered that there is something bigger out there: The Universe. By definition, The Universe is everything, and the way of studying it following a scientific approximation is the Astrophysics. That is the reason I moved to La Laguna when I finished my Physics degree. I learnt a lot about how the Universe works, but I also noticed that there are a lot of things we don't understand yet.
Once I was finishing the Master degree in Astrophysics, I got involved in the PhD. program of the University of La Laguna. I decided to study galaxies because somehow they are the main blocks of the Universe on big scales. Now, I am a PhD student working at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC). I develop my research inside the TRACES group and it consists in deep imaging and low surface brightness science. Recently, I have discovered the importance of the reproducibility of scientific results. This is absolutely a key point in science, and because of that, I try to do all my own investigation in a reproducible way.
