I hold a Ph.D. in Information and Communication Technologies (2021) by Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona, Spain. Previously, I received his BSc Degree in Telematics Engineering (2015) and MSc in Intelligent Interactive Systems (2016), also from UPF. I joined the Wireless Networking Research Group as an intern in 2015, where I worked under the supervision of Dr. Boris Bellalta. During the Ph.D., I was also a recipient of a FI grant from the Generalitat de Catalunya. My thesis research focused on developing autonomous learning techniques for improving next-generation Wi-Fi networks through efficient spectrum access.
Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Smartech department at Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) in the context of the 5GMediaHUB project, which aims to help EU to achieve the goal of becoming a world leader in 5G. Apart from research, I have been involved in teaching undergraduate courses since 2015, with subjects mainly related to computer networks both in UPF and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC).
I love solving complex (and simple!) problems and I do so by mixing my analytical skills and my inner curiosity to explore and approach problems in different ways. I have large experience in collecting and managing vast datasets and working with a variety of programming languages, including Java, Python, and Matlab. Apart from a solid background in statistics, I am passionate about machine learning and have widely used it throughout my career. Also, I am pretty confident in communicating with specialized and general audiences.
Apart from programming and playing with numbers, I love literature, guitar, and chess. Indeed, my future adventures target reading more, practicing flamenco styles, and learning the classical chess openings in deep.
