She has a PhD from the UPC in the Mechanical, Fluids and Aeronautics Engineering doctoral program and has experience in both research and teaching. During her scientific career, two areas stand out:

Manufacturing Processes and Theory of Machines and Mechanisms. Within the framework of manufacturing she has published works in scientific journals, such as the study of the behavior of grinding, honing, turning and drilling. This has made it possible to propose strategies to control the energy consumption of these processes. She has been a research member in competitive projects, as well as in technology transfer contracts.
In the area of Machine Theory, she has designed devices and mechanisms for 3D printers and laser cutting machines. She has directed master’s thesis on 3D printing of chocolate and fruit. She is currently carrying out studies on the mechatronic implementation of 3D printers.
