Mirian finished her Physics studies in 2003 at the University of Oviedo in Spain; she then obtained a 2 year research grant from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology and joined the SpLine (CRG) beamline at the ESRF in Grenoble, France where she worked on the assembly and maintenance of a UHV system devoted to the study of surfaces using LEED and XPS. She then moved to the Swiss Light Source at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland to start her PhD in the group of Urs Staub. She obtained her PhD in 2009 from the ETHZ, Swiss Federal Institue of Technology in Zrich, Switzerland for her work on ordering phenomena and electronic transitions in Co and Mn based A-site ordered perovskites. This work was carried out using soft x-ray resonant diffraction as well as Neutron diffraction, XAS and XMCD.

From August 2009 to March 2011 she worked as a post-doc in the group of Prof. Philipp Aebi at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. There, she studied properties of strongly correlated electron systems using XPS and UPS.

In May 2011 Mirian joined the x-ray group at BNL. She is involved in a  joint project that aims to combine electron diffraction and soft x-ray resonant diffraction to study fluctuations of magnetic nano-domains in manganites.
