She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry (1997) at the Rovira i Virgili University (URV) in Tarragona. After she moved to Yale University as postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Crabtree (USA). She returned to the URV and becoming part of the permanent staff in 2002. In 2011 she was promoted to full Professor in Inorganic Chemistry. She is the chair of InnCat research group at URV, succeeding the former chair, Prof. Claver. She has participated in 60 research projects, European and nationals, in the field of organometallics, catalysis and metalloenzymes. She is author of 145 articles and 13 books/book chapters with an H index of 41. She has directed 10 European Ph.D. Thesis (4 with Doctoral Prize).
