Lucía received her PhD. from University of Santiago de Compostela under the supervision of Félix Goyache and Luis J. Royo, defending a thesis on the worldwide genetic variability of Y-chromosome of domestic ruminants. She did a one-year post-doc looking for structural variations and selective sweeps in the bovine genome, at the university of Liege in the unit of animal genetics (Michel Georges), under the supervision of Tom Druet. Her main research area is on Evolutionary Biology. 

Understanding the dynamics of evolution is fundamental to our understanding of genome biology and evolution, species origin, survival and adaptation. For future work, she will undertake research approaches using the cattle whole genome to estimate the proportion of variation that only exists in Iberian local breeds and clarify the relationship between taurine cattle breeds from Iberian Peninsula and Africa. Lucía recently joined the AGRIGENOMICS group as a post-doctoral fellow from FCT.
