She  obtained her PhD degree at Imperial College London, UK, at the Bioengineering Department under the supervision of Emeritus Professor Kim H. Parker with a scholarship from CONACYT Mexico. During her PhD she developed  one-dimensional models of blood flow in coronary and arterial circulations. 
In 2008 she obtained a PostDoctoral position at the Cardiac Mechanics Research group of the University of California San Diego, under supervision of Prof. Andrew McCulloch, where she worked on electro-mechanic models of the heart until 2011. 
She worked for 4 months as a PostDoctoral Fellow at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and as a Visiting Researcher at the University of Sheffield focusing on electro-mechanic models of the heart.
She was offered a position at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain in 2012 where she is currently a Senior PostDoc part of the Biomechanics group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, where she develops multi-scale, multi-physics, high performance models of the cardiovascular system.
From February of 2019 she holds a Ramón y Cajal Fellowship.
