In 1947 Pujals began working as a researcher in the marine phycology laboratories at the Bernardino Rivadavia Natural Sciences Museum where she worked for 52 years.[1]

Pujals was part of a group of four women scientist from Argentina to travel to Antarctica in November 1968. She, along with Marine Biologist Irene Bernasconi, Microbiologist Maria Adela Caria and Marine Biologist Elena Martinez Fontes, were the first women from Argentina to travel to the continent.[2] During her stay she studied the flora along the Palmer Archipelago and collected Antarctic marine algae that are preserved at the Bernardino Rivadavia Natural Sciences Museum.[1][3] She made a second trip to Antarctica in 1971. In 1971 Pujals also spent a month collecting seaweed specimens on the Falkland Islands at the request of the British Embassy.[1]

During her career, Pujals described two new genera Medeolthamnion and Camontagne.[1]

The standard author abbreviation Pujals is used to indicate this person as the author when citing a botanical name.[4]
