Cristina Sáenz de Miera was born in 1987 in Madrid, Spain. There, she graduated top of the class in Biology at “Universidad Autónoma de Madrid”. She did an Erasmus exchange at the University of Manchester, where she specialized in Neurosciences and Chronobiology. Cristina did a joint PhD in Neurosciences between the University of Strasbourg and the University of Aberdeen, in Scotland. Her thesis project focused on the neuroendocrine control of mammalian seasonal physiology. In September 2014, she joined USIAS in order to continue studying this subject with a special interest on the effects of the lighting conditions experienced by the dams during gestation on seasonal physiology development in adult offspring. Her postdoc is integrated within the USIAS project of David Hazlerigg, “Epigenetic Light”.

Cristina´s general interest is the comparative neurobiology of animals’ adaptations to the environment.
