Team Leader of the Spatial Marine Lab at University of Valencia (UV).


He obtained his PhD in 2014 at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (UIB-CSIC). Afterwards, he conducted several postdoctoral positions in top ranked research institutions funded by highly competitive programs, including the Juan de la Cierva Fellowship (ICTS SOCIB) and the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (University of Exeter). In June 2022, he joined the UV to create its own independent team thanks to the CIDEGENT 2021 Excellence Program (Pla GenT).
