José grew up in Córdoba (Spain) and received his Ph.D. in Marine Sciences from the University of Cádiz (Spain) in 2010. As a postdoctoral researcher, he joined the Northwest Fisheries Science Center-NOAA in 2011, where he focused on the endocrine mechanisms that regulate the onset of sexual development in fishes.

He started working as an instructor at SAFS in 2015, where he became passionate about effective teaching and the science of education. Besides teaching a series of undergraduate-level courses, José is a coach for the UW Evidence-based Teaching Program, where he trains faculties across campus in evidence-informed pedagogical practices, and assist them in the development of specific strategies based on their teaching needs.

When not working, you can probably find him up in the mountain or exploring the PNW with his husband, friends, and his dog Paco.
