He carried out undergraduate studies at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, where he received his Ph.D. He is Full Professor of Condensed Matter and Computational Physics at the Universidad de La Laguna (Spain). He has been working for over 30 years in high-pressure research. His theoretical work in materials under extreme conditions is mainly focused in electronic, structural, dynamical, and mechanical properties from ab initio simulations. He belongs to the MALTA Consolider Team. He was a member of the EHPRG Committee during the period 2009-2012 and from 2017-present. In 2019 he was elected President of EHPRG, and as such he is an ex-officio Member of the AIRAPT Executive Committee (from 2019). In 2021 he was elected as a member of the C20 Commission of AIRAPT.
