BIO

I was born and grew up in Barcelona, Spain, and I was quite interested all my life in science and technology. I successfully finished my computer science degree in Universtitat Politecnica de Catalunya / BarcelonaTech in 2006, and I started working in Barcelona Supercomputing Center as junior researcher on high performance computing. During these years I got my master degree in the same field. In 2009 I started working on a collaborative project for IBM Canada, that had me moving between Toronto and Barcelona for 2 years. In 2012 I moved to Philadelphia and started working at the Biociphers Lab, where I was able to work on machine learning projects like AVISPA and MAJIQ, and unify two of my main interest, science and technology.
