Biography:

Bachelor Degree in Industrial Technology Engineering at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (2015), with her final thesis carried out at Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Sciences in Madrid (IETcc-CSIC). Master Degree in Materials Science and Engineering at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (2018). She was hired as research support technician in Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical Engineering department at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in 2015 until 2017. Then, she was a researcher with her work focused on recycling of composite materials. Nowadays, she is a PhD student at Pontifical University of Comillas in the Engineering Systems Modelling program. Her work is centred on the design and manufacturing of scaffolds by additive manufacturing.
