BSc and MSc (Licentiate) in Computer Science, Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC).
PhD in Computer Science, University of the Balearic Islands (UIB)
Member of the senior corps of cartographers of the autonomous government of Catalonia.
Member of the CTTC’s (Centre Tecnològic de Tecnologies de les Comunicacions) department Geodesy and Navigation (Geomatics Division).

From 1982 to 2000 he occupied several positions at the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia (ICC), always as a member of the Geodesy Unit, where he was involved in the design and development of software systems targeted at the mass production of digital orthophotos, general network adjustment or digital terrain modelling among other areas.

In 2001 he joined the Institute of Geomatics (IG) where he held the position of deputy director for information technologies until the end of 2013. Besides the usual tasks related to such a post, he cooperated with the IG’s research units in several projects in the fields of general network adjustment, web-based systems to process differential GPS data, mobile applications using GPS positioning, sensor calibration or image processing.

As a researcher at the CTTC’s research group “Integrated Geodesy and Navigation”, which he joined in 2014, he is now involved in the development of trajectory determination systems based on robust and hybrid navigation. He is in charge of the GEMMA testbed.
