He was born in Barcelona (1979) and got his degree in chemistry in 2002. In 2006 he obtained his PhD in chemistry working on the interplay between electronic structure and stereochemistry in transition metal complexes under the supervision of Profs. Santiago Alvarez and Eliseo Ruiz. He spent several years in California working on the theoretical modeling of spectroscopic properties of copper metalloproteins and spin-crossover processes in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). His research interests focus on the study of the electronic structure in spin-crossover systems of varying complexity, from molecules to clusters to condensed phases using different computational tools. He is currently a lecturer professor at Universitat de Barcelona.
