I have a degree in Physics (1994), a DEA in Manufacturing Engineering (2001) and a PhD in the department of Electronics and Communication. Accredited as full professor in "Engineering and Architecture" (2016).

As the main milestones: I founded EduQTech (2006), the first technical group accredited by the the regional Government and the first chair in "Innovation and Technical Quality" (2012) in Teruel. I am also the promotor of the first technical association in Teruel (2013) and I am the leader of 11 collaboration agreements. I am also the main researcher of 27 projects (regional, national and international) and I am the author of more than 100 works. I have three six-year research periods (100% of the time) and I have supervised several PhD thesis. I belong to 12 committees (national and international) and I have organized conferences and courses.

With respect to the training capacity, I promoted and led the University Course "Specialization in Quality and Security in ITC", 2004, the first one of this kind in Teruel. I also led the first technical module in the University of Experience. I have supervised 116 degree or master thesis, 2 PhD thesis, with 3 more in progress. I have been a member of university committees for 17 years.

I am currently the dean of the "Escuela Universitaria Politécnica de Teruel".

My career could be summarized in the following key words: adaptation and constant learning, constant work with sustained results in several aspects (teaching, research and management) with external ackowledgment (national and international).

Founding the first accredited group in my faculty was a challenge. Of course, the number of results would be different if I had just joined another group with the research lines already defined. As they were not any of those in my faculty, I am struggling to make this opportunity available for the people in my group.

Awards:
- Accesibility and Community awards in the university free software contest, 2010.
- 3th awardin teaching innovation 2008 (Aragón Government and Social Committee)
- Secondary award Santander 2007, honourable mention in teaching innovation 2007 (Aragón Government and Social Committee)

IEEE Senior Member (2006) and founder of the IEEE Education Society Spanish Chapter, from which I was vice-chairwoman (2008-2010) and chairwoman (2010-2012).

Besides, I have been founder of TAEE Association (Technology, learning and teaching of electronics), (vice-chair 2012-2015).

I have been recognized in research and management (7 awards), some of them at international levels, for instance:
- Special recognition "IEEE Member and Geographic Activities" (New Jersey – USA) 2012.  Chairwoman of the Chapter.
- “IEEE Education Society Chapter Achievement Award” -2011– Chairwoman of the Chapter
- “2011 Best Large Chapter Award – IEEE Region 8” – Chairwoman.

Finally, I was awarded with the TAEE award to the Professional Career (2016) and the "Entreprising Woman 2018" in the University of Zaragoza.
