Upon completion of my MSc in Tropical Medicine and Parasitology at the University of Barcelona (Spain) in February 1997, I applied for a PhD fellowship as a medical entomologist in Equatorial Guinea linked at the Health Institute Carlos III (Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, Spain). I was working as a medical entomologist on a malaria control project on Bioko Island (Equatorial Guinea) conducting research and supporting activities of the National Malaria Control Programme. This project was extended at the rest of Equatorial Guinea territory and the research scopes were also expanded to other vector-borne diseases, including arboviruses and sleeping sickness. Thus, I conducted a wide range of epidemiological and entomological studies during seven years of stay in Equatorial Guinea. Between 2002 and 2008, I combined my activities as technical coordinator of the ISCIII research programme in Equatorial Guinea with my own PhD which focused on spatial analysis of sleeping sickness transmission in the main active foci of mainland Equatorial Guinea. More recently, I have also been collaborating as a medical entomologist in malaria vaccine trials ongoing in Mozambique (Manhiça Health Research Centre, CISM).
In 2004 and 2010, I attended two different masters GIS and remote sensing and additional short courses in spatial analysis that augment my entomological training and which I have been applying in malaria and sleeping sickness studies.
