Tenured professor of Physics at the University of Valencia (Spain). His research focuses on the study of relativistic fluids in different astrophysical scenarios using relativistic hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics numerical simulations. Among the scenarios he studies, are the jets generated in active galactic nuclei or in binary X-ray or gamma-ray stars. He was the principal investigator on different supercomputer calculation projects as well as on an international observation project with the Russian space telescope Radioastron.
