Polytechnic University of Valencia
Teaching Plant Breeding at the Universitat Politècnica de València since 1997, where I got the post of Full Professor in 2009.
My research mostly deals with Solanaceae vegetable crops breeding and conservation and enhancement of germplasm. I have published over 50 international refereed papers on this subject. I'm also editor in chief of the Springer's Handbook of Plant Breeding series and member of the editorial board of several international scientific journals.
I have served as President of the European Association for Research on Plant Breeding (EUCARPIA) for the period 2004-2008, and as vicepresident of the Spanish Society for Horticultural Science (SECH) since 2001.
