Degree in Physics from the University of Granada (1985‐86 to 1990‐91). PhD in Physics from the University of Granada for the doctoral thesis entitled “Methods of minimization of multivalued functions: application of decision trees” (1991‐1995). Lecturer at the Department of Electronics and Computer Technology at the University of Granada (1991), Department of Applied Physics at the University of Almeria (1992‐1996) and Department of Applied Physics at the University of Granada (1996‐2001). Associate professor at the University of Granada and member of the Department of Applied Physics of that university (2001‐). During my teaching activity I have taught 13 different subjects in undergraduate and diverse degrees and doctorate courses. Currently I teach General Physics 2 and Numerical Methods and Simulation in the degree of Physics and double degree in Physics and Mathematics.
My research has dealt with several fields: minimization of multivalued switching functions, non‐ linear digital filters for mutirresolution image processing, segmentation of noisy and textured images, design of quality measures for the evaluation of the quality of segmentation methods, compositional segmentation of symbolic sequences and application to DNA analysis, development of new stochastic models type hidden Markov models for modeling and analysis of symbolic sequences, elimination of anthropogenic noise in signals in the ELF band by means of independent component analysis, study of the Schuman resonances and their possible applications. I have participated as a researcher in several projects in all the areas mentioned above.
