Since 2006, I am a member of the ”Plant Breeding Group” of the Universidad Polítécnica de Madrid. The group focus its research on breeding of cereal crops, especially wheat. The group includes researchers with extended experience in cereal breeding for functional quality, cereal cytogenetics, and molecular biology and cereal products. Such interdisciplinary team facilitates the development of projects including a wide range of experimental approaches, such as field experiments, chemical analysis, molecular analysis and quality tests. My research is focus on the genetic basis of quality traits in wheat, the development of molecular markers for breeding, and the use of molecular markers in assessing the genetic variability in diverse cereal species.
