I did my PhD thesis under the direction of Vicente Navarro-Aznar, on fundamental groups of compact Kähler manifolds. I remain interested in the Albanese map, which I used to classify complex projective and Kähler manifolds with holomorphic vector fields, with M. Nicolau and M. Manjarin. After my stay as Instructor at the U. of Utah in 1997/8, this work extended from Kähler and complex algebraic to symplectic manifolds, where I studied Lefschetz fibrations.

In parallel, I collaborate with the Superconductor group at ICMAB-CSIC on the inverse Biot-Savart problem in ceramic HTS. Since 2011, I have worked with Jaume Haro in Cosmology, specifically in geometric and dynamic problems posed by cosmogonic models. Since 2018 I collaborate with the Clothilde project led by C. Torras at IRI (CSIC-UPC), on the modelling of cloth, its recognition from images and its control by a robot.
