I am a member of the UPC Dynamical Systems Group and the DANCE network.
I am a member of the Editorial Board of several Journals: Boletín SeMA, Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems, Gaceta de la RSME, Journal of Nonlinear Science, NoDEA Nonlinear Differential Equations and Applications.
I am/was involved in organizing several events: the CRM Research Program SIMS08, the AIMS Conferences, the first Iberian Mathematical Meeting, the Carles Simó Fest, the DANCE meetings Ddays, the Spanish meetings Nolineal, the DANCE Winter Schools RTNS, the Workshops of Interact between Dynamical Systems and PDE JISD, as well as other events of our group.
I have been Invited speaker in a number of conferences, like the 6th European Congress of Mathematics, Krakow, 2012, SIAM DSPDES’s, Barcelona, 2010, etc.
