I graduated with a BSc in 1986 and I complete my PhD in 1991 (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) , which was concerned with the sedimentological and structural controls at NW Iberian Triassic basin edge. After postdoctoral research collaboration with Institut Français du Pétrole (France) and Spanish Oceanographic Institute, I appointment as senior lecturer in Sedimentology and stratigraphy in 1998 within the Department of Stratigraphy at Complutense University. I am a specialist in sedimentology, with special emphasis on fluvial sedimentology, tectonics-sedimentation and Slackwater deposits in relationship with Global Change.
