Advice to my younger self
Work hard and never give up – believe in yourself and your possibilities. Take risks in your work and don’t stick to the conventional. Believe that small contributions can actually change the world when you have a wide perspective.

Luckiest break
I always say that finding a place where you can be really yourself and put your ideas in practice is the luckiest break you can have. I found mine in the creation of the Foodomics group together with Alejandro Cifuentes. From that point I started believing the African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
