Technical Mining Engineer from the University of Salamanca (2012), she obtained the Extraordinary End for this Degree. She is also Engineer in Mining and Energy Technology (2014) from the University of Salamanca, MSc in risk prevention from the Camilo José Cela University (2013) and MSc in Mining Engineering and Energy Resources from the University of León (2018). In 2019 she obtained a PhD with International Mention from the University of Salamanca with the Thesis entitled “Analysis and development of new techniques and possibilities of using geothermal energy”. During her research training, she obtained an FPU (University Professor Training) predoctoral grant, a Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral contract and a postdoctoral contract from the Junta de Castilla y León that have allowed her to teach and research in the Mining and Energy degrees of the University of Salamanca and the University of Vigo.

As a result of the research results, she has obtained different awards and mentions in the field of renewable energies (“EDP University Challenge”, “Hueco Energy Starter”). She is Co-Author of more than 50 articles in impact scientific journals and conferences in International Congresses and participant in the development of energy calculation patents. Also noteworthy are the research stays at the University of Turin and the University of Padua. She is currently a Ramón y Cajal researcher at the University of Salamanca and develops her activity within the energy branch of the TIDOP Research Group. Complementary to his research activity, he regularly works as a member of committees and as a reviewer of scientific publications.
