As an external position, she served as an Economist and as a Climate Change Expert at the European Central Bank (ECB) in the Monetary Policy Division, where she mainly worked on academic research on climate finance with text-analysis applications, besides being involved in policy-related work. She designed and constructed two daily text-based climate risk indicators, Physical Risk Index (PRI) and Transition Risk Index (TRI), which find applications to both risk and portfolio management issues, among others, being of interest for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.

During her doctoral studies, she visited the National University of Singapore (NUS) where she was hosted by the department of Mathematics and the Risk Management Institute for a research collaboration.
