In 2011 she participated in the implementation of the Initial Assessment stage of the Levantino-Balear demarcation in the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. In 2012, Farriols undertook a master program in Marine Ecology at the University of the Balearic Islands. Her practicum and master thesis, entitled “Population dynamics and exploitation of four by-catch nekto-benthic species in the bottom trawl fishery of the Balearic Islands”, were carried out at the IEO. From May 2012 to October 2013, she worked as a scientific observer of landings from longline fishing vessels in Palma. She completed her PhD in 2019 at the IEO on diversity of demersal fish assemblages in the Mediterranean, with a grant from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and within the framework of the projects ECLIPSAME and CLIFISH. After that, she worked in the LIFE IP INTEMARES Project "Integrated, innovative and participatory management of the Natura 2000 network in the Spanish marine environment" from February 2019 to October 2020
