Brief Curriculum Vitae
Present Position
- Research Professor of the National Research Council of Spain (CSIC) at the Institute of
Construction Science "Eduardo Torroja" (IETcc).
- Adviser to the State Secretary of Universities of the Ministry of Science and Innovation
She has worked as a scientist studying the durability of buildings, with particular attention at the phenomenon of corrosion of steel in reinforced concrete. She is author of numerous publications and has several national and international patents. She has supervised 24 doctoral theses. She has been Director of the Institute of Construction Sciences Eduardo Torroja (CSIC) for more than 10 years, she has participated in Standardization committees and has been Chairman of several international organizations related to the specialty (UEAtc, RILEM, WFTAO and Liaison Committee which brings together associations: CIB, FIB, IABSE, IASS, RILEM and ECCE). Also she has been Chairman and Vicechairman of a sectorial program of CYTED. She has received several international awards and recognitions for her research work and training. In 2003 she was appointed Doctor Honoris Causa by the University of Trondheim, Norway and in 2006 by the University of Alicante. She is the Principal Researcher of the Project SEDUREC in the Program Consolider Ingenio 2010. At present she has been General Director of Technological Policy of the Ministry of Education and Science and she is Advisor to the Secretary of State Universities in the Ministry of Science and Innovation.
