Dr Julia Gala de Pablo


Dr. Julia Gala de Pablo did a BSc in Biochemistry and a BSc in Physics at the University Complutense of Madrid. She then moved to the UK to do her PhD in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leeds in the Molecular and Nanoscale Physics Group on Raman confocal spectroscopy and microspectroscopy for single-cell analysis and Raman-microfluidics integration. Her following position was funded by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science as a JSPS Research Fellow at the University of Tokyo in Goda-lab, where she researched the development and bioapplications of Raman flow cytometry and Raman activated cell sorting (2019-2021). She is currently a research fellow in Genomics and Neuroscience in the Biomedical Sciences School in the Faculty of Biological Sciences where she works with Dr. Viktor Lukacs in the discovery of novel mechanoreceptors.

Research interests

Julia’s research interests are on single-cell analysis techniques, including Raman spectroscopy and microfluidics-based techniques. Her career aspiration is to develop innovative single-cell analysis techniques to answer biochemical and biomedical questions.
