After working on the development of quality-of-life measures for cancer treatment research (EORTC, Brussels), Carmen then focused on health promotion. Her PhD project on the development and mixed-methods evaluation of a mobile healthy lifestyle intervention for promoting adolescent mental health, involved research on health behavior change, physical activity, sleep, the link between lifestyle and mental health, participatory design, and mHealth engagement. As postdoctoral researcher at ISGlobal, she now studies the environment as a complementary way to promote healthy living. She participated in the proGIreg project where she evaluated the impact of nature-based solutions in post-industrial cities on physical and mental health. She is currently involved in the Equal-Life project studying the social and physical exposome and child mental health.

Her main interests are on green space, urban planning and lifestyle behaviors for promoting community and planetary well-being.
