Doctor by the Universidad de Cádiz with the thesis Depuracion de residuos de taladrinas mediante los procesos de oxidacion humeda y oxidacion en agua supercritica 2000. Supervised by Dr. Enrique Martínez de la Ossa, Dr. Enrique Nebot Sanz.

The focus of my career has been the development of hydrothermal processes: wet air oxidation (WAO), supercritical water oxidation (SCWO), hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL), supercritical water gasification (SCWG), mainly applied to industrial waste disposal and wet biomass and/or its energy recovery. Throughout my professional career, I have managed and /or participated in numerous research projects and contracts: 5 regional projects (3 of them projects of excellence from the Junta de Andalucía), 8 National Plan Projects, 2 European Projects ( Interreg IIB and Consolider), 2 International Cooperation Projects (PCI) and 21 Research contracts with companies. At present I have been recognized at national level with 4 six-year research periods and 5 five-year teaching periods.
