She graduated in Computer Sciences from  the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 1986,  she received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Technical University of Catalonia in 1993  and she received the degree of Information System from the Open University of Catalonia in 2003.   

After receiving the CS degree, Beatriz López  joined the Artificial Intelligence Research Group of the Spanish Scientific Research Council where she carried out the work “Case-based reasoning of strategic plans”. From that point on, her research interest has always been around case-based reasoning and planning and scheduling, now including optimization and learning in distributed environments. She was associate professor from 1992-1995 and 1998-2000 at the Rovira Virgili University and has served as a Computer Science Engineer in several private companies. Since 2000, she has been a senior lecturer in the Department of Electronics, Electricity, and Automation Engineering at the University of Girona. Taught courses include Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In February 2011, she co-founded Newronia, S.L., a spin-off company from the University of Girona. Since 2017, she belongs to the Advisory Board of MJN Neuroserveis, S.L. Since October 2021, she is a collaborator of the Te Ipu o te Mahara, The Artificial Intelligence Institute at the University of Waikato. She is member of the Catalan Association for Artificial Intelligence (member of, Catalan Society of Technology (belonging to the IEC), and several scientific committees. On 2018, she received the accredited advisory seal on “Technology, healthcare industries and life sciences” granted by the Generalitat of Catalonia through ACCIÓ.
