I am a physics with astrophysics student at Northumbria University currently undergoing my integrated masters. Born and raised in Spain, I am trilingual from birth in English, Spanish and Catalan. Very passionate about learning and playing basketball. Would love to be able to transfer my knowledge to other people.
After being an English tutor for one of my high school teachers kids back in Spain, I relocated to Newcastle to further my studies and play high level basketball.
In the summer of 2016 I experienced what the role of a primary school teacher is by performing a placement and St Thomas Moore catholic school.

In 2012 I relocated from my home in Spain to England after receiving a scholarship to study Sports and Exercise Science at TyneMet College as part of the North East Sporting Academy(NESA). Whilst part of the development program I chose to continue my keen interest in Physics whilst balancing my academic studies alongside my basketball commitments. Though challenging at times I have committed, through my hard work and dedication, to balance these passions. Having now chosen to focus my future on a career in Medical Physics I am proactively seeking the opportunity to supplement and apply the learning theory of my Masters with an industry leading institute.
