He was a pupil of Hermann of Carinthia.[2][3] He was an astronomer, and translated into Latin as Liber de compositione astrolabii a major work of Islamic science on the astrolabe, by Maslamah Ibn Ahmad al-Majriti,[4] that he dedicated to his colleague at the Toledo School, John of Seville.

He also produced commentary on Ptolemy's Planisphaerium by the same author.[5]
