Pedro was born in Valencia in October 1965. He received the Licenciado degree, and the M.S. and the Ph.D. degrees in Theoretical Physics from the Universitat de València (UV), Valencia, Spain in 1988, 1990, and 1992, respectively. He also received the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (UPV), Valencia, Spain, in 1997.

His research work was performed at UV, UPV, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Russia), the University of Tübingen (Germany) and the Instituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) in Torino (Italy). He is currently Professor in the Departamento de Matemática Aplicada at UPV.

Nowadays, his research interests include the area of numerical simulation of physical and engineering problems mainly focusing on the analysis of the electromagnetic propagation in optical waveguides and fibre devices (including nonlinear and quantum effects) and on the numerical treatment of heat and mass transfer problems. He is also interested in optimization problems in the field of Synthetic Biology.

He is honorary professor of the Universidad de Pinar del Río (Republic of Cuba).
