Adrián is a Research Fellow at INGENIO (CSIC-UPV), a joint research institute of CSIC and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), since 2017. He is social scientist specialised in the fields of social networks, quantitative science studies and innovation management. He is currently the Principal Investigator of the SciCoMetrics project funded by the Spanish R&D Plan. He is also affiliated as a Visiting Researcher with the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University.
He has a multidisciplinary background, with a PhD and MSc in Applied Multivariate Statistics and BA in Information Science from the University of Salamanca (USAL).
The underlying theme of his trajectory has been to deepen the understanding of scientific knowledge generation processes and innovation, which he has addressed through different perspectives and research methods, including social networks, scientometrics, econometrics, and survey research. His work has been published in journals such as Research Policy, JASIST, Journal of Informetrics, PLOS ONE, and Research Evaluation, among others.
Adrián was a Postdoctoral Researcher, under the highly competitive programmes Juan de la Cierva Incorporación 2017 and Juan de la Cierva Formación 2015 at INGENIO. He enjoyed a PhD fellowship (JAE predoc) at the Centre for Human and Social Sciences (CCHS) at CSIC in Madrid, where he conducted his doctoral research under the guidance of Prof. María Bordons (2011-15). He became interested in quantitative science studies working as a Research Assistant at the Department of Statistics at the University of Salamanca (2009-11). In between academic positions, he worked at the Office for General Statistics and Studies, an agency under the Spanish Ministry of Education (2016-17). He has been a visiting scholar at CWTS at Leiden University, Dalhousie University, Imperial College Business School, and the University of Copenhagen.
