Major in Agricultural Engineering (UPNA, 1998).
PhD Studies (UPNA, 2003) Title: “The inhibition of branched chain amino acid biosynthesis and its use as herbicide target”. Second extraordinary doctorate award.
Assistant Professor (UPNA, 2003-2010). June- October 2005 Visiting researcher (Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, Potsdam, Germany).
Her research line lies on the study of the physiological processes related to the lethal process induced in plants treated with herbicides that inhibit the amino acid biosynthesis, trying to unravel the physiological causes of the toxicity of these herbicides. Her current topic is in the comparison of the physiological effects in sensitive and resistant weeds to glyphosate and acotolactate synthase inhibitors.
She has authored or co-authored (until may 2016) of 23 articles in high-impact international journals (ISI) of Plant Sciences, Agriculture and Agronomy.
