She earned her Ph.D. from the IMPA in 1995 under the supervision of Alfredo Noel Iusem (Generalized Proximal Point Method for the Variational Inequality Problem).[3] In her thesis, she "introduced and analyzed solution methods for variational inequalities, the latter being a generalization of the convex constrained optimization problem."[4]
