Senior Lecturer of the Department of Geography of the Universitat de València since 2002, although she has taught since 1996. For more than 10 years she has done her classes in the former Bachelor of Geography, now a degree in Geography and Environment, and the Diploma in Tourism, Currently Degree in Tourism. He has also taught in the Masters in Management and Promotion of Local Development, in its different editions and in the Master of Techniques for Environment and Territory Management.

The main lines of research are framed within the subdiscipline of Economic Geography, with particular attention to the analysis and territorial impact of economic activities. Currently, it develops research projects on environmental and social sustainability in urban and metropolitan areas, with special interest in the use of quantitative (SIG) and qualitative techniques (surveys and interviews, etc.) for the determination of indicators on these issues. In addition, in recent years, has developed a line of study on the territorial behavior of tertiary activities, with special attention to the tourism sector and public services.

It is worth noting the participation in research related to forced mobility, transport and its spatial impact at the local level. Although its line of research is not exclusively focused on tourism, this has been the subject of analysis for years. The subjects of study have been the impact of tourism on the territory, the tourist territorial resources and the models of territorial implantation of the tourist activity, in particular in the Spanish Mediterranean.
