He is currently an Associate Professor at Universidad de Alcalá, Madrid. He is Cofounder of the Photonics Engineering Group in this university, which he presently leads. Topics of research include fiber-based slow and fast light, Raman lasers and supercontinuum generation in optical fibres, distributed and point fiber sensors, and all-optical processing in fibers and semiconductors. The main milestones in his research career are the first experimental demonstration of slow and fast light in optical fibres, some of the first studies of CW-pumped supercontinuum generation in optical fibers, and the development of high-resolution chromatic dispersion mapping techniques in optical fibers.
