His research is focused on intimate partner violence (IPV) against women and child maltreatment, with particular emphasis on public perceptions and attitudes, and the analysis of the influence of social environment-related variables in the prevalence and the unequal distribution of risk of partner violence against women. He has also been involved in the development of new intervention strategies for batterer intervention programs, and the evaluation of success indicators of intervention programs for partner violence offenders. He also has conducted research on parental socialization practices and children and youth developmental outcomes. He has been a PI or co-investigator on about 30 research grants from the Spanish Government agencies, and other national and international funding bodies (e.g., European Commission, Swedish Research Council). His research has been published in some of the most influential journals in their field such as American Journal of Epidemiology, Bulletin of the World Health OrganizationJournal of Health Geographics, Social Science & Medicine, International Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, Journal of Interpersonal ViolenceJournal of Marriage and Family, Child Abuse & Neglect, Journal of Consulting and Clinicial PsychologyViolence Against Women o PLoS ONE.

In 2017, the World Health Organization invited him to be part of the ‘WHO Expert Group on methodological and measurement issues for violence against women statistics’ convened with the aim to improve new statistics and comparative international studies for a better monitoring of the goal 5.1(Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation) of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
