Previously, she coordinated the public sector work towards the 2030 Agenda implementation in Mexico and headed the Specialized Technical Committee for Sustainable Development Goals.

She has worked in the academic, social, international and private sectors in different responsibilities to promote the use of evidence in high level decisions.
