My work at ERF

I joined ERF in March 2016. During the first years, I worked on the design, maintenance and optimization of energy monitoring systems for buildings. As well as this work, I began to participate in energy saving projects in various devices.
Little by little, I went from technical projects to more strategic or analysis work on a more global scale. In this way, in 2018 I began my collaboration in energy transition studies or Adaptation Plans for Sustainable Energy and Climate (PAESC) for local authorities and broader territories.
I continue to work in that area and also carry out energy monitoring projects and consumption optimization studies for buildings. I enjoy observing the energy behaviour of any entity and analysing small details in order to understand how the energy flow operates and how it could be minimized, thus reducing the ecological footprint and environmental impact.


My experience

I am committed to social transformation, seeing my work as an effective tool from a sustainability and gender perspective.
I finished my studies in Energy Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia in 2015. During the last 2 academic years, I participated in the “Rubí Brilla” project at Rubí Town Hall. The objective of the project was to provide technical support to families at risk of social exclusion to achieve significant savings on the energy consumption of their homes.
I continue training in the field of efficiency and energy management. In 2017, I took the Certified Energy Manager Course of the Association of Energy Engineers, and passed the following year.
From 2019 to 2020, I studied for a Master’s in Comprehensive Construction Management from The School of Architecture of La Salle (Ramon Llull University (URL), on sustainability and energy efficiency. These studies have provided me with essential resources when evaluating the energy system of a building, especially concerning passive systems.
Since the beginning of 2021 and until 2023 I have participated as an associate professor in two subjects of the Energy Engineering Degree at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), which has allowed me to continue with one foot in the university and constantly recycle knowledge.
My passions revolve around mountains and sustainability in multiple forms, and I feel the work I do at ERF, and the company’s criteria, fit perfectly into this.



Collaborative work is essential.
"Everything starts with oneself."
