Diego was born in Murcia, Spain and completed his undergraduate degree in Sport Science (BSc) at the Catholic University San Antonio of Murcia (UCAM), Spain, in 2009. After that, Diego completed a MA in Teaching Proficiency at the University of Granada, Spain (2010) and a BA in English Studies at the University of Murcia, Spain, in 2014. During this time, he also got a funded scholarship at the UCAM Research and High-Performance Center as a MSc student to complete a MSc in High Performance Sport: Strength and Conditioning. His work during that time focused on the mechanisms of ACL rupture during landing after jumping in different sports. After spending some time working in Spain and Germany as a Sport Teacher for secondary school, Diego started a Graduate Teaching Assistant position at Universidad San Jorge, Zaragoza (2018-2019) and completed his PhD in Health Sciences in 2020 at the same university. Immediately after that, he took the role of Assistant Professor of Sport Biomechanics and Sport Therapy at Universidad San Jorge, Zaragoza until December 2022. Since January 2023, Diego acts as a Postdoc Researcher at the Department of Sports Science of the University of Innsbruck, Austria, working in the “Neurophysiology Research Group” of Prof. Dr. Peter Federolf.
Since 2021 Diego also collaborates as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Sport Biomechanics in the MSc in High Performance in Cyclic Sports: running, swimming and cycling at the University of Murcia, Spain.

My research focuses on human locomotion (i.e., gait and running), movement analysis and motor control. I am also interested in the validity and reliability of new software and devices for movement analysis both in the lab and in the field. I have ongoing projects on Running with Power that aim to assess the validity and reliability of power-related metrics to quantify training load in order to prescribe training and racing accurately. Research questions that interest me are, for example, how can we relate running power zones to physiological landmarks? How do we deal with small movements in order to maintain stability in both ordinary situations and during athletic tasks? Are these small movements, at least, as important as bigger movements?
