Cristina has an undergraduate degree in microbiology from the University of Edinburgh, and an MSc in Medical Anthropology and Global Health from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, for which she obtained a Postgraduate Excellence Award in 2017. In 2019, she began her PhD studies in science and technology studies (STS) at the University of Edinburgh. Her interdisciplinary doctoral research aims to explore how antimicrobial resistance (AMR) governance, hospital infrastructures and healthcare practices may relate in the context of democratic Spain. Her ethnography will primarily focus on how antibiotic stewardship guidelines and protocols are envisioned and enacted in Spanish hospitals.

Before returning to Edinburgh and academia, among other things, Cristina worked as an assistant editor for an e-book series in Medical Anthropology at the Medical Anthropology Research Centre (MARC) of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, and as a digital communications and conference organisation officer for AIBR, the Network for Iberoamerican Anthropologists. She is also part of the Beyond Resistance Network, led by anthropologist Iona Walker.
