Almería 10.07.1976. I am PhD on Agronomic Engineering by the University of Almería (2007). Nowadays I hold a researcher position in the Greenhouse Technology group of Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture. Before I held  post-doc position in the Physiology and Protected Crop Technology in the IFAPA (Institute for Research and Training in Agriculture and Fisheries of Andalucía) Center La Mojonera in Almería from 2012 to 2015. Before that, I worked as a researcher in the Greenhouse Technology Department of the Experimental Station Las Palmerillas of Cajamar from 2000 to 2011.

My  research activity has been focused on the field of greenhouse technology for different climates, with special attention to the Mediterranean region. My main fields of research range from the modeling and improvement of greenhouse natural ventilation systems (using different techniques such as Computational Fluid Dynamics), design of new greenhouse prototypes, testing of greenhouse covering materials, testing of different greenhouse cooling and heating techniques, development of new greenhouse concepts (heat storage, semi-closed greenhouses, etc.), CO2 enrichment, greenhouse climate modeling and use of renewable energies in the greenhouse, amongst others. I have participated in 11 research projects funded from regional, national or European institutions. I am co-author of 11 peer reviewed papers, 7 chapters in specialized books, 56 contributions to national and international workshops and symposia (9 times as invited speaker), a patent and a large number of participations in national and international courses and seminars. In 2006 I was the secretary of the International Symposium on Greenhouse Cooling organized under the umbrella of the ISHS. I have translated from Spanish to English the book "Invernaderos de plástico: Tecnología y Manejo" (I.S.B.N.-10:84-8476-321-8, ISBN 13:978-84¬8476-321-5, whose autor is Nicolás Castilla Prados; English versión entitled “Greenhouse Technology and Management” (ISBN-13: 978-1780641034 ISBN-10: 1780641036  published by CAB International in 2012). I am a usual reviewer for different Journals such as Biosystems Engineering, Building and Environment and Acta Horticulturae, amongst others. I have directed one Agronomic Engineering end of Degree Project and have been 3 times a member of a PhD tribunal. I speak  fluently 3 languages (Spanish, English and French).
