Short bio

I was born in Villa del Rio (Córdoba, Spain), on November 2, 1966.

I attended at Primary School until 1980. Next I began my Bachelor studies in Instituto Santos Isasa at Montoro(Córdoba, Spain) untiel 1983.

From 1983 to 1989 I completed my studies in Mathematics, obtaining the following awards:

At the end of these studies, I wrote my tesina (Master thesis) entitled Curvatura de Gauss prescrita en superficies compactas (Compact surfaces with prescribed Gauss curvature), under the supervision of Prof.  Sebastian Montiel.

From 1989, I began with by Ph.Thesis, being Doctor in Sciences (Mathematics) in 1996 (University of Granada). My advisor was Sebastián Montiel and the title of the thesis is Superficies con curvatura media constante en el espacio euclídeo (Constant mean curvature surfaces in Euclidean space). I'm especially honoured to have received the Award Premio Extraordinario.

From October 1989, I began to teach in the University of Granada as a member of the Department of Geometry and Topology. My position now is 'catedrático de universidad' (full professor). 

I am happily married and I have two daughters.
