    I am "Ramón y Cajal" researcher at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Before that, I was a PhD student in the JAE-Predoc fellowships program under the supervision of Ana M. Mancho at Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas ICMAT in Madrid and Teaching Assistant ("Profesora Ayudante" (2012 -2014) ) and Assistant Professor ("Profesor Ayudante Doctor" 2016- 2020) at Department of Mathematics, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. I also was a postdoc LabEX LIO (Laboratoire d'excellence. Lyon Institut des Origines) at Laboratoire de Géologie de Lyon : Terre, Planètes, Environnement (CNRS, ENS, Lyon1) in Lyon, France and Juan de la Cierva Formación Postdoc at Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Aeronáutica y del Espacio at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.


    2020/2021 L'Oréal-Unesco "For Women in Science" award. L'Oréal España

    2020 Antonio Valle SEMA Prize to Young Researchers. Best Spanish Applied Mathematician under 34 (SEMA- Sociedad Española de Matemática Aplicada)

    2015 Donald L. Turcotte Award. American Geophysical Union (AGU) Nonlinear Geophysics Focus Group.

    2015 "Vicent Caselles" award Best Spanish Mathematician under 30 (BBVA Foundation - RSME).


    My research focuses mainly on applied mathematics in geophysical fluids and related problems. More specifically in convection problems, both from the standpoint of the analysis of stationary and time-dependent solutions, as well as from the numerical methods used to calculate them, in the application of lagrangian descriptors in oceanic and atmospheric flows and in the melting of Phase Change materials.

    My research is supported by the Agencia Estatal de Investigación through RYC-2018-025169.
