Mazarredo, 14. 48009 Bilbao Basque Country - Spain


Professor Español got his PhD in Physics in 1992 at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia in Madrid. After a postdoctoral stay at the University of Cambridge as a Marie Curie Fellowship holder during 1993-1994, wherehe joined the Group of Polymer and Colloids of the Cavendish Laboratory, he was Assistant Professor from 1998 to 2010 at UNED and has been on sabbatical leave during the year 2009 as a Senior Fellow at the FRIAS Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies. He is Full Professor since 2010 of Applied Physics at the Department of Fundamental Physics of the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, based in Madrid. His research interests are in Soft Matter, complex fluids and dynamic descriptions of complex molecular structures. He is an expert in simulation particle methods applied to the simulation of hydrodynamics of simple and complex fluids. He has contributed substantially to the development of the Dissipative Particle Dynamics method which is one very popular method for the simulation of coarse-grained models for complex fluids. He is most interested in the theoretical foundations and thermodynamic consistency of new simulation methods based on coarse-graining.
