Pilar is the Business Development Manager since she joined Mestrelab Research S.L. in October 2017. Pilar grew up in Venezuela and obtained her degree in Chemistry from the Universidad Central de Venezuela in 2005. After moving to Texas she obtained a Master’s degree in Analytical Chemistry from Baylor University. Between 2009 and 2013 she obtained her PhD in Chemistry from The University of Warwick, where protein chemistry and FT-ICR-MS were the centre of her research. As a mass spectrometry expert, she developed a passion for instrumentation and decided to join Loughborough University as a Research Associate. During this time, she took on a project to develop a prototype for a compact mass spectrometer interface in collaboration with Advion Inc.  Moving to Advion Inc. as a Sales Manager was a change in her career progression as she enjoyed developing new skills in the areas of customer relationship and business development. Outside work she enjoys dancing, running, travelling and spending time with her family.
