I was involved in the first and final phases of Datagrid and LCG computing grid projects.
This GRID activity allowed me to have experience with GRID production infrastructure and
the LCG project focused on distributed analysis. I presented this work in two national
conferences, in Wve international conferences; it led to 1 publication in ATLAS note
(publicated in Nucl. Instr. And Meth) and 4 publications in Springer Lecture Notes in
Computing Science. At the same time, I participated and am participating in the ATLAS
exotic group, in the search of new physics in ttbar pairs of high pT using the boosted objects.
I am involved in the measurement of the top quark pair production charge asymmetry. This
measurement represents an important test of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) at high
energies and is also an ideal place to observe effects of possible new physics processes
beyond the Standard Model (BSM). I have participated in this measurement using 4.7 fb-1 of
pp collisions at a centre of mass energy 7 TeV collected by the ATLAS detector at the LHC. I
have presented this work in two national conferences, different collaboration workshops and
has been published in Journal of High Energy Physics.
Over the last years as postdoc at CERN with a Marie Curie and in Valencia, I have contributed
to the evolution of the computing model for the ATLAS experiment working in ATLAS
software contributing to the development of the software infrastructure needed for the
physics analysis, participating very actively in the EventIndex project for the ATLAS
experiment, which is a new metadata catalogue at event level which tries to exploit emerging
NoSQL technologies and I am one of the main responsible of the Distributed Spanish ATLAS
Tier-2 since 2001. I have worked and am working to build, maintain and operate a Tier-2 Grid
computing infrastructure for experimental data analysis and Monte Carlo event generation
for the ATLAS experiment.

Currently I am the Principal investigator of the project "PID2019-104301RB-C21". Towards a
True Federated Spanish ATLAS Tier-2 (IFIC site) to face the LHC Big Data management and
processing challenges (Phase II)"". In my scientiWc lifetime, I have been the autor of more
then 1000 JCR artciles registered in Web of Science (193000 + citation , h-index 190)"
