Irene had a degree in Biology from the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2017. In 2018, she began a Master's Degree in Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology at the Complutense University of Madrid, during which she enjoyed a Collaboration grant from the Ministry of Education and Science in the Department of Microbiology III.

The search for a master's degree project focused on microbial interactions and their biotechnological applications led her to join into Intergenomics Group at IBBTEC, led by Fernando de la Cruz. In this project, she accomplish the methodological optimization of wheat seed endophytic microbiome analysis.

After concluding her Master's degree, Irene begins her doctoral thesis under the supervision of Marta Robledo and Fernando de la Cruz. Her principal aim is expanding knowledge on plasmid metagenomics and its applications in environmental biotechnology.
