He currently works as a full time researcher at the research centre CICANT, where he runs the Early Visual Media Lab. He is the founding organizer of the International Conference on Stereo & Immersive Media: Photography, Sound and Cinema Research, and the principal editor of the corresponding International Journal on Stereo & Immersive Media.

In 2020 he has joined the administration board of the ‘Fundación para la Difusión de la Fotografía y Estereoscopía Histórica FBS’ in Madrid.
