For her final undergraduate project she studied the doctor-patient relationship in Planned Parenthood consultation, focusing on the process of hormonal contraceptives prescription. Intrigued by the social impact of legal drug consumption she unrolled a Master's Degree on Rational Use of Medicines at the University of Valencia. She is interested in the applicability of anthropology to the area of healthcare, and in the integration of techniques such as user experience design to improve people's experiences in health systems.
