She did an internship at L’Université Pierre et Marie Curie in France, where she studied Zn(II) and Cl– complexes in water.
In November 2015, she attended the Mexican Particle Accelerator School with the objective of learning, studying and designing a particle accelerator. She also attended the Product and Process Design Concepts in Life Science & (Bio)Chemical Industries during 2013 at Delft University of Technology, Delft, Netherlands. Her research background lies in the synthesis of metallic complexes (Mg(II), Cr(III), Mn(II), Co(II), Ni(II)m Cu(II), Zn(II)), polyurethane formulation, lixiviate characterization, water treatment and product design. She joined the Faul Research Group in October 2017 as a PhD student. Her work will focus on novel metal-containing conjugated microporous materials. Outside the lab, she enjoys dancing, cooking, reading and traveling.
