BSc in Computer Science from Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) (2007), Master in Computing from UPC (2008) and PhD in Computing from UPC (2013). Her PhD thesis, titled Lightweight and Static Verification of UML Executable Models was directed by Dr. Jordi Cabot Sagrera and Dr. Cristina Gmez Seoane.


Since 2007, she has worked as a lecturer in the IT, Multimedia and Telecommunication (IMT) department at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), where she has been responsible for subjects in the area of software engineering, programming and undergraduate thesis. During the years 2016-17 he has been responsible for teaching IMT studies. Previously, he has worked at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia as a research assistant (2006-2007) and has completed a pre-doctoral stay at the Technological University of Eindhoven (TU / e) (2012).


Her research lines are focused on the area of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) and its application in software development. Some of his current research topics include the development of verification techniques to assess the quality of software models (class diagrams, operations or feature models) in order to improve the final quality of the systems software generated from them; and the modeling of a set of API services available to help users interact with them, among others.


She has been researcher in the the Conceptual Modeling Group (GMC, UPC-UOC) (2006-2009), the Research Group in Software Engineering (GRES, UOC) (2007-2015) and the Systems, Models and Software Lab (SOM Research Lab, IN3) (since 2015).
