Alberto received a MS in Geophysics and Meteorology and a MS in Computer Engineering from the University of Granada. In 2010 he obtained his PhD in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Granada. During his graduate education he was a visiting scholar at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (La Jolla, CA) and at the Brookhaven National Laboratory (Upton, NY). In 2012 he moved to San Diego with a postdoctoral position at the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department at University of California San Diego. Since 2012 he is a member of the Atmospheric Physics Group at the University of Granada. His main research topics are the properties of atmospheric aerosol and clouds, and their interaction with solar radiation, focusing on their role on climate change and the efficiency of electricity production in solar power plants. Alberto also teaches several undergraduate- and graduate-level courses at the University of Granada and is the instructor of the Renewable Energy course at the Arcadia Granada Center.
