Researcher in the area of volcanology, focused on the study of magma fragmentation and ash generation in explosive volcanic eruptions, through analogous experiments in the laboratory and the characterization of the grain size distribution of the resulting fragments.

She is a Geological Engineer graduated from the Universidad de Los Andes, ULA (Venezuela), and subsequently carried out post-graduate studies (2012-2014), within the framework of an ERASMUS MUNDUS program, of the European Commission, in the study of fine soil materials (clays), ending with a double degree from the Université de Poitiers (France) and the Technical University of Crete (Greece). She carried out PhD studies (2014-2018) within a Marie Curie project, also from the European Commission, within an ITN, VERTIGO (Initial Trainning Network), in the Department of Physics and Geology of the University of Perugia (Italy).

Her research interests cover the analysis of samples from pyroclastic deposits in order to understand efficiency on the magma fragmentation process, and linking, as well, this efficiency of fragmentation with eruptive energy for the evaluation of volcanic hazard.
