I´m Dr. Agriculture Engineer with a Ph.D degree on “sustainable reclaimed water use in agriculture” with Thesis Award from Technical University of Cartagena and a Master Degree on Planning and Management of Water Resources. During my research period, I have writen international SCI papers (30), and many communications to national and international congresses (>28). During my research career, I have been working at University of California (USA), University of Beira Interior (Portugal) and Technical University of Denmark (DTU). About precision irrigation and water reuse in agriculture, I have demonstrated the transfer of knowledge to the private and public sectors, participating in several international projects (10) and private projects with companies (10). In parallel, during the last years, I got educational experience as professor in different courses (8) related with precision irrigation and water reuse in agriculture. Also I was supervisor on several University Master’s degree and Final Projects (8). I have demonstrated a multidisciplinary scientific work on this field, collaborating with other Institutions, Departments and companies. I worked as postdoc on the University of Bari on the Dipartimento di Scienze Agro Ambientali e Territoriali (DiSAAT), on the framework of the European project “Low-cost water desalination and sensor technology compact” (DESERT). I´m the Technical Director of “The IWA Regional Conference on Water Reuse and Salinity Management (IWARESA)” and the Main Coordinator of the Mediterranean network Youth for Water (MedYWat) funded by Center Mediterranean Integration (CMI). Actually, i´m researcher on the Irrigation Department at CEBAS-CSIC (Murcia,Spain), where I coordinate a research project.
