In her professional career, she has worked mainly in international contexts, engaging in European cooperation projects with third countries through programmes like EuropeAid.

She has worked at various institutions, both public and private, including the University of Barcelona (UB), the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and Hospital Clínic, and has collaborated with private companies (biotech SMEs) as a consultant specialising in the biotechnology sector. Finally, as an external expert hired by the European Commission, she has evaluated research projects in the field of the information and communications technologies (ICT).
