Héctor earned his undergraduate degrees in biochemistry (University of Salamanca) and chemistry (University of Valladolid) before pursuing a PhD in biochemistry at the Rocasolano Institute for Physical Chemistry (IQFR, Madrid), where he studied the structure, dynamics and interactions of peptides and proteins using NMR spectroscopy. After a position as a visiting researcher at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, he moved on to a postdoctoral position at the Complutense University of Madrid, where he strengthened his biophysical background by studying cell nucleus mechanics in disease with optical tweezers. Héctor is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Biological Research (CIB, Madrid), where he focuses on the biophysical study of nanoelectromechanical devices for internal cell measurements.
