An organic chemist by training, Nuria received her PhD in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics (MEMP) from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST) in 2016.

In 2018, Nuria received Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action postdoctoral fellowship to carry out a collaborative project between Institut Quimic de Sarria and Imperial College London on wound dressings to treat diabetic foot ulcers using RNA therapies.

Since September 2020, Nuria is an Imperial College Research Fellow leading her group at the intersection of biomaterials, biology and medicine in the department of Bioengineering. Her main interests are the development of smart drug delivery using nanotechnology and biomaterials, and the understanding of biological and genetic interactions of biomaterials and tissues. She was awarded the 2019 European Tissue Repair Society (ETRS) Young Investigator Award and was highly commended in the 2020 Women of the Future Awards in the Science Category.
