Born in Madrid, 1971, he studied Theoretical Physics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He spent many years in the DESY Laboratory in Hamburg (Germany) studying deeply inelastic electron-proton scattering processes in the ZEUS experiment, where he obtained his PhD and then worked as DESY researcher. In 2001, he moved to USA to work in Fermilab. He participated in the CDF experiment at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider, with emphasis on searches for new physics. In 2007 he moved back to Europe and started working also in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, that initiated operations in 2009. Since then he is acting as project leader of the IFAE-Barcelona group in CDF and ATLAS experiments. In 2015 he was appointed Head of IFAE Experimental Division, Scientific Manager of the Spanish High Energy Physics Program, and Scientific Delegate in CERN's Council.
