She holds a PhD in Law from the Public University of Navarre in Spain, where she started her research career in public international law and European law. After gaining professional experience at the European Parliament's Directorate-General for Research in Luxembourg, she joined the European NAvigator (ENA) project, forerunner to the CVCE, in 1998, where she worked as a researcher in European integration studies until the CVCE was founded in 2002.
