Short presentation

I am interested in studying photochemical and photophysical processes, solvent effects and QM/MM calculations. I'm also a developer and maintainer of the Molcas quantum chemistry program.

I studied and obtained the PhD degree in the University of Extremadura, Spain. My research there was focused on the development of the ASEP/MD method for studying solvent effects, with high-level quantum methods and an atomistic, statistically-averaged representation of the solute.

I spent two years in Grenoble, France, working on QM/MM calculations on proteins, with Prof. Martin Field. My interest then shifted to photophysical processes in solution, studying phenomena such as dual fluorescence.

Since March 2013 I am employed as a researcher in Uppsala University, where I contribute to the development of Molcas, a frontline quantum chemistry software package.
