Doctor by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid with the thesis Estudio comparativo de la evolución sedimentaria y diagenética de los litosomas carbonatados arrecifales (pre-rifting) de la Cuenca de Cameros. Kimmeridgiense. La Rioja-Soria 2001. Supervised by Dr. José Ramón Mas Mayoral.

Degree in Geological Sciences (1995) and PhD in Geology (2001) at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), specializing in Sedimentary Basins. First National Award for my undergraduate degree and Extraordinary Award for my doctorate. - The research lines that I have developed and in which my scientific contribution has been more relevant are: a) Diagenesis (petrology and elemental and isotopic geochemistry of carbonates). b) Stratigraphy and sedimentology of coastal and shallow marine carbonate deposits, mixed carbonate-siliciclastic and carbonate-evaporitic. These lines, which have resulted in the publication of 43 JCR articles and 30 in non-indexed journals or chapters of international books. - Principal investigator of 4 competitive research projects funded by the Ministry and participation in 4 other projects. - Principal investigator of 4 research projects funded by REPSOL-YPF (Art. 83) to carry out the sedimentological and diagenetic study of carbonate hydrocarbon reservoirs, and participation as researcher in 4 other projects funded by companies (CEPSA, REPSOL-YPF and TRAGSA). - Co-author of 3 geological maps (MAGNA) published by the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain-IGME. - I have supervised 4 doctoral theses (2 of them obtained the Extraordinary Doctorate Award) and I am currently supervising another 2 theses.
