Graduated in Geology (2008), master degree (2012), at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and gemmologist (2015, Barcelona University). Her earliest studies were focused in ore Mexican deposits in hydrothermal environments. During her time at UNAM, she collaborated in different research projects, the most recent being the so-called GEMex "Mexico-Europe Cooperation for the investigation of improved geothermal systems and super-hot geothermal systems".
Abigail Jiménez obtained her PhD in 2018 (Polytechnical University of Catalonia). Her doctoral research dealt with genetic, chemical and mineralogical assemblage of the Santa Fe Mining District, a deposit of Sn-Zn-Pb-Ag-In; located in the central Bolivian Andes. Her postdoctoral research mainly focuses in the geochemistry and mineralogy of ore minerals in nano-scale using electronical microscopy. Likewise, Abigail is co-editor of the Geology series of Springer, as well member of the National System Research of Mexico (SNI).
