Architect by the Superior Technical School of Architecture of Madrid, he is Doctor by the University of Alicante with the Doctoral Thesis Victims of a map. Architecture and resilience over time of the flexible culture. He has collaborated with Francisco Alonso de Santos, Clavel Arquitectos, Víctor López Cotelo, José María Torres Nadal and Massimiliano Fuksas, in Rome. Between 2002 and 2007 he was an associate architect at the AdHoc studio in Murcia.

From 1996 to 2005 he lived in Rome (Italy) where he was a research assistant for one year at the Università degli Studi "La Sapienza" in Rome. He has published articles on city, architecture and society in specialized magazines such as C3 Korea, A 10 New European Architecture or Pasajes de Arquitectura y Crítica. He has lectured at the University of Seville, the Istituto Nazionale di Architettura (Rome), the Royal Danish Accademy of Fine Arts (Copenhagen), Tabakalera (Donostia), and the Centro Universitario de Diseño de Barcelona, among other institutions.

In 1998, after travelling to Tel-Aviv and Tulkarem (Palestine), he began to work on the political implications of architectural practices in the Palestinian-Israeli territorial conflict, which occupied part of his academic dedication, both in teaching and research. He has published articles on the Palestinian question and participated in conferences, seminars and educational workshops on the subject. In 2008-2009 he developed a teaching programme that resulted in the work "Mapping Gaza", which explores the implications of architectural discipline in the conflict, and more specifically in the territory of the Gaza Strip.

Since 2010 he has been conducting research on the relevance of the ordinary in architecture from a socio-technical perspective. He has lectured on the subject at MediaLab (Madrid), SOS 4.8 (Murcia), and La Casa Encendida (Madrid).

He has been guest lecturer at the Institut D'Arquitectura Avançada de Catalunya, at the European University of Valencia, at the Istituto Nazionale di Architettura (InArch, Rome), at LaBoral in Gijón and at Tabakalera, Donostia. He is a full-time lecturer in the Architectural Projects Area of the Architecture degree at the University of Alicante since 2007 (he is currently a Doctorate Professor), where he directed the digital production laboratory LIPS (Fab Lab), is director of the magazine i2 of the Department of Graphic Expression of the University of Alicante and the Master in Architecture.
