I am a Profesor Titular (equivalent to Associate Professor, or Senior Lecturer/Reader) of Mathematics at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.

My area of research is geometric group theory, and in particular the metric properties of finitely generated groups. I have studied extensively some interesting families of groups, such as Thompson's groups and Houghton's groups.

I am a member of the BarCeloNa Group Theory research group.
