She holds a PhD in Development Policy and Management from the University of Manchester (2014). Her PhD research contributed to the understanding of the causes of income inequality and is particularly relevant for developing countries who wish to devise adequate pro-poor policies and address concerns of social justice. Her research has received attention from various international organisations, such as the International Labour Organization, the World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

During her academic career, Marta has gained a range of teaching experience. In particular, she has taught many topics relevant to sustainable development, including poverty traps and poverty alleviation, rural development, human capital, environmental wealth, governance and institutional economics, as well as statistical techniques of impact evaluation of development policies.
Since joining the University of Warwick, she has been nominated and longlisted for the University Awards 2017 in the category of Student Experience.
