    After her school days in Tarragona, Dr. Pérez-Gussinyé enrolled in a physics master program at the university of Barcelona, which she finished in 1996. Soon after, she became a doctoral researcher in the geodynamics section of GEOMAR in Kiel, where she wrote a dissertation entitled "Continental riftung and break-up at the West Iberia margin: an integrated geophysical study" and was promoted in 2000 at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel.

    From 2001 to 2005, Dr. Pérez-Gussinyé worked as postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Earth Sciences at Oxford University (UK), at last with a 3-year NERC Research Fellowship. From there she returned to Spain to the Institute of Earth Sciences 'Jaume Almera' in Barcelona with a 5-year 'Ramon y Cajal' Fellowship of the Spanish Research Council. In 2009 she was appointed as lecturer at the Royal Holloway College of the University of London (UK) and avanced in 2012 to a senior lecturer position.
