Biography
 He holds a doctorate degree in Thermal Engineering from the Polytechnical University of Catalonia. He has been serving as the Head of Thermal Energy and Building Performance Group at the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC), Spain since January 2010. Previously, in 1999, he has co-founded AIGUASOL, a cooperative firm, which has become an international reference in the fields of thermal energy efficiency, renewable energies, building physics and software development. Since 2006 until the end of 2009 he has been the General Manager of AIGUASOL and he has leaded several departments in the company over the last decade: the Building Physics group (1999-2005), the Software group (1999-2008) and Financial & Economical Department (since 2003). He has research and professional experience in the fields of heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics, numerical and dynamic simulation, energy efficiency, building physics, thermal comfort, software development and daylighting. Additionally, he is founder and minor partner of a new company which is devoted to develop a solar thermal concentrating collector with stationary reflector.He collaborates in several national and international research and consultancy projects. He has leaded the promotion and consolidation of the use of advanced simulation tools in Spain and Portugal like TRNSYS (more than 100 users), EES or Meteonorm. He is one of the main developers of the TRANSOL tool (more than 400 users over the world) for the simulation and design of solar thermal systems. He serves as a member of various associations apart from being an author for many books.
