National Centre for Biotechnology (Madrid, Spain). Spain
Research Professor for the Spanish National Research Council at the National Centre for Biotechnology in Madrid (Spain). His interests focus on the biology and biotechnological potential of environmental bacteria, with an emphasis on the transcriptional regulation of biodegradation pathways for xenobiotic compounds and the development of molecular tools to programme microorganisms as industrial catalysts. More recently, his work has been exploring the interface between synthetic biology and environmental microbiology.
