Carla Bautista Rodríguez

I have always been interested in nature and biodiversity, so I decided to study biology. In 2016 I obtained a degree in Biology from the Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid. Another great passion that always accompanied me was astronomy and the study of the Universe. This is how I came to know the domain of astrobiology, which united my two great passions, astronomy and biology. For this reason, I completed my internship at the Astrobiology Center (CAB) at the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) in the Department of Molecular Evolution. From that moment, I knew that the study of the origin of life was going to be part of my concerns forever since I had always been very interested in evolution. In 2016 I obtained a grant for the Promotion of Research in Master’s Studies-UAM 2016 to carry out the “Master in Biotechnology” program at the Autonomous University of Madrid. In 2016 I met Christian Landry’s laboratory and was fascinated by its different approaches to study evolution at the molecular level. Therefore, I decided to apply for a master’s degree in his group. Currently, I am supported by a “La Caixa” Scholarship that allows me to do a master’s degree in biology at Laval University.
