She received both her MSci degree in Chemistry and her Ph.D. degree from the Universidad de Oviedo (Spain) in 1998 and 2002 respectively. The latter under the supervision of Victor Riera and Julio Perez. After a three-year postdoctoral period at the University of Strathclyde working with Robert Mulvey, as a Marie Curie Fellow, in 2006 she took up a Royal Society University Research Fellowship and Lectureship there.
