ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-2032-7380

I am a postdoctoral research scientist at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain). I received my Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences (2018) with a thesis on global climate modeling. I have been a visiting researcher at JPL-NASA and Colorado State University. My work follows two main lines of research: 1) human-earth interactions in climate models; 2) precipitation science (satellite measurements and numerical models).

My scientific production is the result of these two lines of research. This is a selection of the most relevant publications (see my ORCID for a complete list):
