She graduated in Biology at University of Barcelona in 1984, then she did the master in genetics in 1985. Her PhD focused on the biodegradation of organic sulphur contained in coal, in 1992. Afterwards she did several postdoctoral stays at University of California, at Los Angles (USA) under the supervision of Dr. Robert P. Gunsalus. The study was about the genetic regulation of different metabolic processes in E. coli. On the other hand, she also performed several studies in the microbiology of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation at Enology Faculty at University Rovira i Virgili. Currenty, she is an associate professor at the Chemical Engineering Department and her research focuses on the valorization of biomass for the production of lactic acid and PHB and the biodegradation of xenobiotic compounds as well.
