Before joining Bruegel, Marta worked as an Analyst within the Markets division of Citigroup in London.

She also worked on the design and development of structured but systemic strategies that seek to obtain returns from small structural imperfections within the markets, identifying these as well as the best method for exposure.

Marta was also a trainee at the Permanent Representation of Spain to the EU, in the Office of Parliamentary Affairs, where she monitored the activity of the European Parliament and prepared detailed reports on debates regarding the Economic governance of the EU, as well as those that tackled contingency planning for Brexit (both at the Plenary level and in the ECON Committee).
