Her previous work experience has developed in two parallel lines: on the one hand, undertaking high quality research, reporting and dissemination of results for public and private institutions on topics spanning water-energy-food nexus assessments, water footprint, water and energy efficiency in agriculture, nexus technologies, stakeholder engagement and participatory scenario building and Delphi Consultations. On the other hand, providing innovation consultancy services for the development and support of proposals for innovation funding, particularly for different branches of the H2020 program.
