I am an associate profesor of psychology at the Complutense University of Madrid, teaching the courses of Individual Differences and Bilingualism in the department of Social, Work and Differential Psychology.
My research focuses on human psychophysiology and affective science with a particular interest in fractal variability and its significance for physiological adaptation and psychological well-being.
Although I publish my research in academic journals to receive the necessary recognition by evaluation committees and funding agencies, I take issue with how the commercial interests of large publishing houses interfere with the scientific process. In 2012, I co-founded Open Scholar CIC to create a community of researchers interested in investigating, developing and implementing alternative ways of publishing, evaluating and communicating science. Our group has published innovative ideas and developed infrastructure to support a journal-independent evaluation and communication system. I collaborate with the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) and have coordinated the transition of the journal Psicológica to a diamond Open Access model, published on the institutional repository of Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).
