Post-doctoral research experience

Physiology and Nutrition Lecturer at University of Stirling

Soy Licenciada en Dietética y Nutrición por la Escuela de Dietética y Nutrición del ISSSTE, en la Ciudad de México, de donde soy originaria. Me he enfocado a la nutrición deportiva desde que terminé la licenciatura y he tenido la oportunidad de seguir desarrollándome académica y profesionalmente. Completé mi PhD en fisiología e hidratación en la Universidad de Stirling donde pude realizar diferentes estudios investigando el potencial de hidratación de diferentes bebidas en diferentes poblaciones. Actualmente coordino varios módulos para los programas de Sport and Exercise Sciences y Sport Studies y también sigo desarrollando varios proyectos de investigación.

Research (5)

The fundamental goal of my career is to develop my understanding and knowledge of human physiology and the influence that exercise and nutrition have on human health, body composition and on athletic performance.
