PhD at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in 1992. Post-doc at Rutgers University from 1993 to 1994 with a Fulbright Fellowship. Associated Porfessot at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona since 1995. Visiting professor at Università di Padova(2004-05), Universitat Autónoma de México (2010), NTNU (20011) and Bielefeld University (2011).

Two PhD Thesis advised, and advising a third one. More that 40 research papers written. Research results include proving that artinian modules do not satisfy the Krull-Schmidt Theorem, solving a question posed by Krull in 1934, and a positive solution to the so called Baer splitting problem posed in 1962.

President of the Societat Catalana de Matemàtiques from February 2019 to december 2022. Secretary of the Comité Español de Matemáticas (Spanish adhering organization to IMU) since 2019.

She is on the editorial board of Journal of Algebra and its Applications and of Communications in Algebra.
