Researcher at Drug Delivery and Targeting Group - Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca (VHIR), Barcelona, Spain, and is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Technology from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Science from University of Barcelona, Spain. Has a Master in Pharmaceutical Sciences (University of Lisbon, Portugal) and a PhD degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences - Pharmaceutical Technology (University of Porto, Portugal).

Her research interests are based on the development of formulations, namely nanoparticles, for the administration of drugs and biopharmaceuticals (peptides, proteins and genetic material) for the treatment of challenging diseases. Also has experience on study the effects of drugs and delivery systems on cancer stem cells and on the development and use of cell-culture models, animal models, and ex vivo models for drug absorption studies through the pulmonary, intestinal, and blood brain barrier.
Her major objective relies on the development of multifunctional drug delivery systems with improved characteristics such as increased therapeutic index and targeted delivery, allowing and efficient and safe treatment of challenging diseases like cancer or infectious diseases, with the ultimate goal of personalized medicine.
Her research work at different projects and collaborations with a variety of research groups from different countries have resulted in the authorship of two patents, several research and review papers, as well as book chapters.
