Guillem Mas graduated in Biotechnology by the University of Barcelona (2017). He then joined the Integrated Mycobacterial Pathogenomics Unit in an internship as part of the European Master in Genetics at the University Paris-Diderot (Paris VII), where he studied horizontal gene transfer in tuberculosis-causing mycobacteria. Keeping the interest in working on highly pathogenic microorganisms, in 2018 he joined the Yersinia Research Unit as PhD student to study the genetic diversity, phylogeography and pathogenicity of Yersinia pestis, with the aim of providing a precise cartography of worldwide plague diversity in the context of the CARTO-PEST project (ANR-ASTRID).
