    Besides my professional activities, I have also collaborated as reviewer, providing support to the Optical Society of America (OSA) and to the Institute of Physics (IOP).

In addition, every year I try to take part in the annual Week of Science, bringing science and technology closer to kids and non-scientific audiences.


    I have many interests, either physical (sports, dancing, travelling) or intellectual (mental sports, reading, teaching, movies, music). I regularly do different sports (running, swimming, cycling, golf), and regarding dancing, lindy-hop is my present goal, the forerunner dance of rock and roll, but I also dance salsa and merengue.


    In social contexts, I really enjoy to engage with my family and friends, looking for and giving rise to funny situations. Concerned of the current world injustices, I collaborate with ONGs like UNICEF, MSF, Save the Children and Red Cross. I have been brought up in respecting other cultures and beliefs and in being honest, so it is very important for me, and I always try to apply, the following three key points: to help and make people happy wherever I am, to demonstrate and promote transparency and integrity in every action I do, and to learn as much as possible from any kind of situation.
