She coordinates the Research Group SMIRE+CoDiRE in the University of Oviedo. This group is among those leading the international research on Statistics with fuzzy data, and it is involved in some international Working Groups on the topic, in the main responsibility and supervisión of funded related projects, in organizing specialized international conferences, and in Editing books and special issues of ISI-JCR-Science Edition journals.
She has been member of the Editorial Board of six ISI-JCR-SE journals, being the Co-Editor-in-Chief of one of them along four years. She has been involved in several national and international panels and juries to evaluate and assess granted projects and awards. In 2014 she has received the Silver Medal from the Principality of Asturias. She is Fellow of the International Fuzzy Systems Association since 2015.
