    Brief CV

    Civil Engineer (Polytechnic University of Valencia, 2008), MsC in Concrete Engineering (Polytechnic University of Valencia, 2011), PhD with international mention in Construction Engineering (Polytechnic University of Valencia, 2013, Extraordinary Award).

    Currently he teaches structures and he is part of the research group 'Engineering of the Construction and Structures'.

    His research experience has focused on the study of the behaviour of reinforced concrete structures under seismic actions and on the development and analysis of experimental campaigns on the strengthening of columns and beam-column joints with different techniques. Its purpose is to reduce the vulnerability of damage or collapse of the structures under earthquakes events. His research currently focuses on the study of the applications of shape memory alloys in structural engineering.

    Throughout his professional career, he has worked in different areas of structural engineering. His experience is: forensic structural engineering, stability of historic buildings, subway lines and stations, residential and industrial buildings, special foundations and precast structures among others.
