My name is Ignacio Negueruela. I work as a professor in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Alicante since November 2017. I came to Alicante as a an advanced research fellow within the Ramón y Cajal programme in 2002, and became associate professor in 2008.

I graduated in Physics from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 1993. I obtained a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Southampton (UK) in 1997 with a thesis on the properties of Be/X­ray binaries under the supervision of Prof. Malcolm J. Coe. I worked as a postdoctoral research assistant at the Astrophysics Research Institute (Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK) until  I gained a European Space Agency external fellowship to work at the Italian Space Agency. During these years, in collaboration with Prof. Atsuo Okazaki, I developed the commonly accepted standard model for Be/X­ray binaries. I also worked as a researcher at the Strasbourg Observatory (CNRS, France). 

Since coming to Spain, I have been principal investigator in 6 research grants from the Spanish government and four small research grants from the Valencia regional government. I have (co-) supervised five PhD thesis and adviced half a dozen postdoctoral researchers. I have also obtained grants for extended visits to the Open University (UK, 4 months in 2006), the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambrdge (UK, 3 months in 2014) and the University of California Santa Cruz (USA, 3 months in 2015 as Fullbright scholar). In 2016, I also spent three months at the University of Florida (USA). I have carried out shorter visits (2 to 3 weeks) to a number of institutions, the IAC (Tenerife Spain), the Institute for Astronomy of the University of Hawaii (USA, 2010), the Astronomy Department of the University of Valparaíso (Chile, 2013) and the Astronomy Department of Cape Town University (South Africa, 2013).

I have been involved in teaching since my postgraduate years. I have ocassionally taught advanced post-graduate courses in Astronomy, but most of my teaching at the University of Alicante have been Applied Physics courses for architects and building engineers. Since 2018-19, I am teaching different subjects for the Physics and Maths degrees.
