I am a Professor at the Department of Social and Organizational Psychology, Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, Madrid, Spain. I am also currently the Director of the Department.

My research is focused on strategies to improve intergroup relations (i.e. recategorization, intergroup contact, extended contact meta-stereotypes), and in those processes involved on such improvement (i.e. self-verification and verification of ingroup identity). My main interest in the last few years is to explain the roots of extreme behaviors and terrorism via identity fusion.

Among my teaching experience I have examined Phd candidates for National (e.g. Madrid, Granada, Murcia, Almeria) and International (e.g. Lisbon, University of Texas, Austin) Candidates
