Project Manager

I'm a Project Manager in Barcelona Digital Technology Centre. I hold a diploma in Science of the Education from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and a Master in Integrated Project Management at Universitat de Barcelona. I worked in Paris, some African countries, and in Spain. Prior to join BDigital, I have been during two years operational manager in a 45-people research group at UPF and financial coordinator of a 17 M€ FP6 European project. I also collaborated with the data centre of the IFAE (Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona) as head of the Communication and joined BDIGITAL’s Project Management Office (lead by Mrs Bernadette Grabenbauer-Nagl) in 2009, where I'm actually responsible of the legal, financial and administrative coordination of the BrainAble, Citclops and Synergy-COPD FP7 projects. Specialties: R&D executive support: management, calculation and payment according to financial legislation & accounting norms, different funding agencies (EC, Spanish and Catalonian administrations) & institutions, communication coordination, detection and resolution of budget deviations, risk management; contact with the Centre’s suppliers at national- international level (equipment, logistics, subcontracts). Monitoring/support of the auditing processes and settlements addressed to the funding institutions. I'm also deeper involved in the preparation of proposals for R&D projects within competitive national and international calls.

Lets us see... this is a promised land!

I’ve spent most of the last year at hospital undergoing neural rehabilitation and now I’m trying to get my daily life back to normal.
