He has led many multidisciplinary studies about psychiatric disorders and has analyzed a large number of clinical and neuroimaging datasets; these usually worldwide collaborations have lead to >100 publications in Pubmed-indexed journals (>70% in the first quartile).

He has also developed several new meta-analytic and neuroimaging methods, among which MetaNSUE and SDM software must be highlighted for their applicability and becoming methods most used by the scientific community at the present time. His research is currently also focused on the clinical prediction (e.g. individual treatment response or recurrence risk) based on available clinical and biological data to pave the way for evidence-based personalized medicine.
At the academic level he teaches and coordinates several postgraduate courses in statistics and neuroimaging, is an associate editor of Frontiers in Psychiatry and BioMed Research International, and holds the presidency of the Spanish Neuroimaging Society.
He has mainly developed his work in London (IoPPN, King’s College London, where he is a honorary researcher and keeps continued collaborations with Dr. Paolo Fusar-Poli and Katya Rubia), New Haven (Yale University, Connecticut, USA), Stockholm (Karolinksa Institutet, Sweeden, where he is also a honorary researcher and keeps continued collaborations with Prof. David Mataix-Cols) and Barcelona (FIDMAG and Institut d'Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer, IDIBAPS, Barcelona, where he works nowadays).
