Ana is an enthusiastic architect who believes in innovation through built space. She graduated from CEU Architecture School in Spain in 2014, but she actually finished her Architecture training at Aalto University in Finland. There, she worked designing learning environments and started her research about NeuroArchitecture. Between 2014 and 2016, she did her online training in Neuroscience and Perception at Duke University while she was an interdisciplinary teacher at Colgate University in NY.

Nowadays she combines her research titled “The Neurological impacts of built space and its relationship with human behavior” with her job as a high school teacher. She truly believes that the foundation of architecture is to ensure the emotional health of its dwellers.
