I initiated my research career in 2000 when I was awarded publicly funded Collaboration and Intercampus fellowships. In 2001, I started my PhD at the University of Alicante (FPI studentship). I performed two 3-month research stays (University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002, and University of Poitiers in 2004) both of them resulted in several SCI publications. My doctoral work finished with 9 SCI publications (6 of them as a first author, 4 in Journal of Catalysis). After a postdoctoral stay at the Institute of Physical Chemistry “Rocasolano” (CSIC), in 2008 I was awarded a MEC/Fulbright fellowship to conduct my own research on catalytic conversion of biomass derivatives within Prof. James Dumesic´s group. I developed several pioneer works on catalytic upgrading of biomass sugars (glucose) and acids (lactic acid, levulinic acid) into advanced biofuels and valuable chemicals. My prolific research stay in Dumesic´s group finished with 19 publications (13 in SCI journals, 6 book chapters) and 1 international patent licensed, with particular emphasis on a paper published in Science (one of the 30 biggest chemical breakthroughs of the year according to magazine Chemistry World) and two hot papers in Green Chemistry (one of them cover paper). In January 2010 I joined the Advanced Materials Laboratory (LMA) at the Univ. of Alicante where I initiated a new line of research on biomass conversion giving rise to 8 SCI research articles (3 reviews in high impact journals, 5 research papers) and 1 book chapter. In September 2011 I was offered a research position at the University of Córdoba to lead the biomass conversion unit within the “Nanoscale Chemistry and Biomass Waste Valorization Group”. My main tasks were the design and implementation of new catalytic routes for the valorization of a variety of biomass and waste feedstocks resulting in 16 publications including a hot paper in Green Chemistry. From October 2012 to December 2016, I served as a Senior Researcher at Abengoa Research,  the R&D division of Abengoa. During this period, I developed technologies for the production of advanced biofuels via catalytic conversion of biomass, thermochemical energy storage for CSP plants, and hydrogen-related devices for the Bioenergy, Solar and Hydrogen business units (some of them were patented) and participated in a good number of FP7 and H2020 projects, resulting in 5 SCI research papers, 1 book chapter, 3 national patents under revision and several European Projects as a PI. In 2017, I was awarded a Ramón y Cajal (RyC) Fellowship (number 2 in Chemical Technology) to develop my own research at the University Loyola, where I currently lead the "Materials and Sustainability" Group. In summary, the number and quality of my publications (72 in total, 50 % of them as a first or corresponding author; 85 % in SCI journals and 5 book chapters), communications to scientific conferences (31, 17 oral), books (only editor of 4 books on biomass conversion), and patents (2 licensed world patents, 1 national patent, 1 more under revision) clearly demonstrate my capacity to lead novel research lines. I accumulated more than 7400 citations (5000 within the last 5 years), with an h index of 37. I have participated as a PI in 4 European projects from both FP7 and H2020 programs. I have participated in more than 20 research projects, half of them (10) as a PI. Since I am RyC fellow, I have secured for my host institution more than 1.1 M euros in public funding as a PI.
