Research

Research Interests

I am a veterinarian with a PhD in toxicology and immunohistochemistry studying the accumulation of toxic and essential trace element accumulation in cattle. Work awarded in 2014 with the ¿Outstanding Doctorate Award in Veterinary Sciences¿ by the University of Santiago de Compostela.

I have always been a passionate of animal and human health, sports nutrition and performance as well as natural compounds and drug discovery. During my work as post-doc researcher in TEAGASC (Ashtown, Dublin) I learnt techniques of protein extraction and generation of bioactive peptides from seaweeds for its future use in the food industry.

During the next 2 years my work will continue in University College Dublin (UCD), focusing on the extraction, purification and characterization of different molecules with potential anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and immunostimulatory effects "in vitro" and "in vivo" from Irish seaweeds. The health enhancement seaweed products developed during this period could be potentially exploited in a recent future for a wide variety of Irish companies (food, pharmaceutical or cosmeceutical).
