Research Interests

Becerrils's research career started in 2008 when she obtained a Fellowship from the Geological Survey of Spain (IGME) for four years (2008-2012), focused on the volcano-structural study and the long-term volcanic hazard evaluation on El Hierro Island (Canary Islands, Spain). After the completness of this period she worked as a self-employed worker in the "Consejo Insular de Aguas de El Hierro", performing hydrogeological and volcanological tasks (2012-2013). She was employed after this period by the Institute of Earth Sciences Jaume Almera (CSIC) to conduct research related to the 2011 volcanic crisis of El Hierro Island (2013-2014). During 2015-2016 she was involved and employed as Postdoctoral Researcher in a European Project (VeTOOLS) funded by the European Commision's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) (2015-2016).
