He graduated in Physics in 1987 from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Until his PhD (awarded in 1994 at Yale University), he worked with Prof. J. Fernández de la Mora on aerodynamic focusing, inertial impaction, electrospray atomization, and differential mobility analysis. As postdoc associate with Prof. John B. Fenn at Virginia Commonwealth University, he carried research on electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. In 1996 he joined Aradigm Corporation (Hayward CA, USA) to help develop liquid micro-jet technology for inhalation drug delivery. There he co-discovered, with Prof. Alfonso Gañán-Calvo of Universidad de Sevilla (Spain), the Flow Blurring regime for fine liquid atomization. Since joining ICREA and Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) in 2004, his research has focused on electrospray and electrospinning for the manufacturing of nanomaterials. He leads the Droplets, intErfaces, and floWs (DEW) research lab at URV.
