Industrial Engineer (2006) and PhD from the Universidad de Castilla la Mancha (2010). Since 2007 I have been studying the pollutant emissions of diesel vehicles and the injection with alternative fuels (biofuels). In 2007 I obtained a scholarship associated to the research project of the Regional Government of Castilla la Mancha Reference. PAI06-0160. In 2008 I obtained a position as Lecture in the Escuela de Ingeniería Minera e Industrial de Almadén (EIMIA). After submitting the thesis in 2010, I made a 6-month research stay at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom, where I delved into the research on synthetic fuels. Since 2016 I occupy the position of Senior Lecture in the EIMIA. Currently, my research focuses more on injection systems performance and the control of polluting emissions as a function of altitude and their behavior using diesel substitute fuels. In 2017 I made a 3-month research stay at the CMT-Motores Térmicos Institute of the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (Spain), where I learned new techniques for the evaluation of injection systems. I have participated in three national, two regional and one European research projects, all of them related to the use of renewable fuels in diesel engines. As a result of these ten years of research, I have published 15 articles indexed (14 of them Q1 or Q2). I have participated in 8 international congresses and 7 national congresses or conferences. Reviewer of the International Journals.
