Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering of the University of Oviedo from 1992 to 2003 and currently at the Department of Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Engineering of the University of Alcalá and associated researcher at the Advanced Study Institute of Madrid (IMDEA Agua). His recent scientific interests are focused on water treatment with emphasis on aqueous micropollutants and the processes for their removal. This includes the development of methods for assessing the toxicity of emerging pollutants comprising engineered nanoparticles and their mixtures. He is also working on the bio-nano interaction of engineered materials and the production of fouling resistant membranes, particularly nanofibrous electrospun materials. He participated in more than thirty financed research projects and R&D contracts and published over eighty scientific articles and book chapters. He is currently leading several projects with national and international funding.
