Tenured professor in the Department of Building Structures and Physics at the Higher Technical School of Architecture of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). After his degree in Physics, he received his PhD from the Complutense University of Madrid for his experimental and theoretical research on the magnetic properties of cobalt microstructures.

In addition to his research and teaching experience in the UPM and UCM he has worked in the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (ICMM) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Minnesota (USA), in the Laboratoire de Physique de la matière condensée of the École PolytechniqueCNRS (France) and in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick (UK).

At present, his research is focused on the study of the electronic structure of quantum materials by means of computational methods, using mainly Density Functional Theory, and analytic models.

He is a member of the Complex Systems Group (GSC) at the UPM and he also collaborates with the Quantum Nanosystems Group (QNG) in the Department of Materials Physics at the UCM.
