This young lecturer and researcher’s work is focused on the field of construction, specifically, on construction materials and the use of mathematical models to simulate physicochemical processes.

She works on research projects related to the development of new construction materials with specific features, the use of non-destructive diagnostic techniques, the assessment of energy efficiency and acoustic comfort conditions, how materials react to fire, and the computer simulation and design of elements intended to make buildings safer and more sustainable.
