    My PhD was obtained in Feb. 2011 from the Astrophysical Institute of the Canary Islands (IAC) in Tenerife, Spain. Later, I moved to a research fellowship at the Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO) in Sydney, Australia, followed by a 3 year ARC Super Science Fellowship at AAO. Afterwards, I moved for almost 3 years to Mexico for a tenure-track position at the Institute of Astronomy at UNAM. From July 2017 I am a Dark-Carlsberg foundation fellow at the Dark Cosmology Centre, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. My PhD thesis won a national prize in Mexico and an institutional prize at IAC/ULL, Spain for the best thesis. In 2016 I won the L'Oreal-UNESCO prize for women in science of Mexico. I have 52 refereed publications in international journals (first author of 9), with more than 1400 citations. I have supervised 6 students from undergrad to PhD levels. I have attended 54 internationals meetings/schools, and given 18 seminars in different institutions in Mexico, Spain, UK, Germany, Denmark, and Australia. I participate actively in Institutional activities as well as outreach and teaching.  I speak Spanish and English, and have a good level of French.
