Dr Marchante-Rodriguez studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Alicante. Her degree project was Designing of a Pilot Plant System to Deionized Water from the Water Supply of Alicante City.

Following that, she started her PhD at the University of Alicante in collaboration with the Chemical Engineering Department and the Optics Department. She obtained a qualification of Cum Laude. During that period, she has taken part in the development of researching projects related to the application of the nanoclay-based pigments into different substrates, like textiles and printing inks. In addition, she has attended several National and International Conferences with oral presentations and poster contributions. Furthermore, she has participated in the application for research funds for the spread of the application of the nanoclay-based pigments in other fields.

Currently, she is a Research Fellow in Polymer Nanocomposites at the Centre for Automotive Technology (CAT) (Environmental Science and Technology Department) in Cranfield University.
