He was born in Barcelona in 1978 and got the degree in chemistry at the University of Barcelona in 2002. Then he joined the group of Prof. Joaquim Sales and started working on the development of QSAR/QSPR methodologies for in-silico predicting the properties of inorganic and organic compounds. During this time he earned the M. Sc. Degree (2004) as well as the Ph. D. qualification (2008). After that he spent five years working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol (2008/2010) and the Institut Català d’Investigació Química (ICIQ, 2010/2013). He moved back to the University of Barcelona in late 2013 and joined the Electronic Structure group as a Juan de la Cierva researcher. In 2019 he was appointed as Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry. His research interests focus on the computational study of catalyzed homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions, reactivity inside in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and molecular magnetism of transition metal and lanthanide compounds.
