Biography

I graduated with honours from the BSc Nutrition and Dietetics, University of Guadalajara, Mexico in 2009. I worked for 3 years (2011-2014) for a Mexican company specialised in kidney disease in the innovation, research and development department working on randomised controlled clinical trials related with the effect of synbiotics on gastrointestinal symptoms, nutritional status, inflammation and kidney function in persons with chronic kidney disease not on dialysis, as well as in persons receiving haemodialysis. I graduated with distinction from the MRes Dietetics, University of Nottingham in 2015. I finished my PhD in the Centre for Kidney Research and Innovation, University of Nottingham in 2019. Currently, I am a research fellow (level 4) working in the Centre for Kidney Research and Innovation, Academic Unit for Translational Medical Sciences, School of Medicine, University of Nottingham.
