Since 1988 he is a Permanent Research Scientist of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), presently at the Institute of Geosciences (IGEO), Madrid (Spain).
He is the chairman of the research group on the Perigondwanan marine Palaeozoic (CSIC Code 642852), corresponding academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Argentina, and honorary member of the Spanish Association of Petroleum Geologists and Geophysicists (AGGEP).
He was Director of the Institute of Economic Geology (CSIC-UCM) from 2001‒2006 and former Vice-Chairman of the IUGS International Subcommission on Ordovician Stratigraphy (ICS-IUGS, 2004‒2012).
His main research interest focuses on several invertebrate fossil groups (graptolites, trilobites, molluscs, and others) ranging from the Ordovician to Devonian in the peri-Gondwanan area of SW Europe, North Africa and South America, including aspects of biostratigraphy, palaeobiogeography and faunal dynamics; he also worked in Ordovician chronostratigraphy and biochronology of the Gondwanan domain. 
His scientific results totalize nearly 500 works including research papers (WoS h-index=14), books and geologic maps, besides the discovery and formal characterisation of 113 new palaeontological taxa from the Palaeozoic.
He has also directed 20 competitive research projects and programmes on bilateral cooperation, seven PhD theses in Spanish and Portuguese universities, and was the lead organiser of important meetings, such as the 11th International Ordovician Symposium, the 6th International Graptolite Conference, and the 1st International Conference on the Lower Palaeozoic of Ibero-America, among others.
