Biographical Info
I focus my research in the deterioration processes affecting materials of archaeologic and architectural cultural heritage such as stone, mural paintings, mortars, ceramics and rock art and, also, contemporaneous mural paintings. In the last 10 years, I have led three national research projects, under a competitive regime, focused on optimizing the methods of desalination, cleaning and consolidation of rocks and mortars in ancient heritage and she currently coordinates a European project on the conservation of urban art. I have also directed R+I projects with companies in the architectural rehabilitation sector and I am a regular scientific advisor to numerous companies for the conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. I am co-author of 113 scientific papers (scopus, 2021) and I have a H rating of 23. I'm tenured teacher in the School of Mine and Energy engineering, of University of Vigo, teaching about mineral processing methods.
