He works on postharvest fruit quality, disorders and treatments, and also in quality-oriented breeding from a postharvest point on view (mainly melon), as a member of the Postharvest & Refrigeration Group and researcher of Institute of Plant Biotechnology in UPCT. He is also member of other two groups dedicated to tropical fruit in Colombia. His teaching activities include official BSc courses (always as prof responsible) of postharvest biology and technology (15 courses), food extractive industries (18 courses), food process technology (10 courses), unit operations of food engineering (1 course),food byproducts (1 course) and cereal derivates (1 course). In MSc he also teach applied biotechnology (responsible of the course) postharvest biology and technology, gas chromatography and in the past was the responsible and organizer of the fresh-cut course eight years. He was the principal investigator in several national, regional and other projects. He has published papers in journals (58 in SCI, 70% of them Q1), books or book chapters (24), other journals (16), and scientific conferences (>165 in total, 49 of them published in Acta Horticulturae).

He was the supervisor of 2 PhD students and co-supervisor of 3 more, and 1 more is underway. Also, he directed/codirected 27 BSc final projects in UPCT, 1 project in UPV, 3 MSc thesis, 8 projects of students of Univ.Autónoma Chapingo (México), and 8 to students of Univ.Quimper. He supervised 14 students during practical trainings in companies, and several more for BSc international mobilities from Iberoamerica and other countries. He directed and was teacher of the I international postharvest trainining for Syngenta in 2003. He was profesor of three courses in the past of postharvest technology, and two international ones organized in the present at UPCT (one of them online), His H index is 18 and obtained his fourth six-year periods recognized by CNEAI in 2016. He reviewed 25 projects to the Spanish Agency of Evaluation, 2 projects for FONCYT-Argentina, 142 papers of 33 journals (25 of them indexed scientific journals such as PBT, JAFC, JASHS, LWT, FRI, etc.), and also was the reviewer of several international institutions (Colciencias, ARO, FONCYT, ) and editorials (Blackwell-Wiley). In 2001 he was awarded as young PhD researcher by SECH. He is a member of the editorial board of 4 scientific journals. He has experience in the organization of five international scientific conference in his area (e.g. secretary of international ISHS postharvest congress ) and was the co-convener of one symposium in IHC2010.
