Photovoltaic Solar Energy. University of Jaén. Jaén.
He is an Industrial Engineer (U.N.E.D) and PhD in Photovoltaic Solar Energy (University of Jaén, 2009). He worked as designer in automobile industry during two years (Valeo S.L.) and then, he worked as lecturer at University of Jaén (2000), where he got his accreditation as Tenured Associate Professor (2012). Nowadays he is Associate Professor in Electronics and Automation Engineering Department at University of Jaén.
His first research line was focused in Photovoltaic Systems, specifically, in Grid Connected Photovoltaic Systems (GCPVS), developing measurement devices for PV modules and PV systems quality controls. After his postdoctoral stays in ANU (Canberra, Australia, 6 months) and Tianjin University (Tianjin, China, 4 months), he opened a new research line focused on water purification thanks to hybrid photovoltaic-photocatalytic systems and hybrid autonomous systems (renewable energies-fuel) based on low cost design for its monitoring and management.
He has participated in 23 research projects, contracts and agreements, being the leader and principal researcher in some of them. The research results include 34 papers in international journals (JRC), 11 papers in national journals, more than 40 publications in international conferences, 9 invited talks and one patent. He is reviewer of 13 journals gathered in the ISI Science JCR and belongs to the editorial board of Internacional Journal of Photoenergy. He is supervisor of more than 45 honour student projects of Technical Degrees.
