Doctor by the Universidad del País Vasco - Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea with the thesis Nuevos métodos de síntesis de protoberberinas y benzo(c)fenantridinas via 3-arildihidroisoquinolinas 1993. Supervised by Dr. Esther Domínguez Pérez, Dr. Maria Esther Lete Exposito.

Nuria Sotomayor obtained her Ph.D. Degree (1993) at the University of the Basque Country. After postdoctoral research at the University of Waterloo (Canada) with Prof. Victor Snieckus (1994-1995), she returned to the Organic Chemistry Dept. of the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao (1995), where she was promoted to Full Professor in 2010. Her current research interest is focused on the development of methodology based on organometallic chemistry and asymmetric catalysis, applied to the synthesis of heterocyclic systems, potentially active compounds, natural products or drugs
