Sara graduated in Physics at the University of Barcelona, Spain, in 2009. Sara then stayed on at the University of Barcelona to complete her Masters degree in Biophysics (2010), during which she undertook her final research project in the Neurophysics Laboratory led by Dr. Jordi Soriano. She is currently pursuing her PhD in the same place, with Dr. Jordi Soriano as her thesis advisor. Her PhD project is focused on the characterization of activity dynamics and functional network connectivity within clustered neuronal cultures.
Sara joins the Unit for one month (5 May - 5 June) in order to learn new experimental techniques that she can apply to characterising the structural map of connections in her neuronal cultures, as a collaboration with Unit scientist Dr. Juan Mena-Segovia in the Bolam Group.
