Overview

Research areas

Description of research and teaching

I joined the Conservation Biology Informatics Group, Helsinki University in June 2011 to work on the Global Environmental Decision Analysis (GEDA) project. I am originally from Seville, Spain. My broad area of interest is computational data analysis, and applications to the modeling of environmental and ecological processes.

Before (2009--2011), I was a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at the Environmental and Industrial Machine Learning group of the Adaptive Informatics Research Center of Excellence of the Academy of Finland, Dept. of Information and Computer Science of the Aalto University School of Science (former Helsinki University of Technology). I worked on the project DENOT-EM-CI, developing nonlinear tools for environmental modeling and chemoinformatics. 

I earned a B.Sc. in Computer Science (Physics) in 1999, followed by an Engineering degree in Computing in 2002, both from University of Seville. I earned a M.Sc. on intelligent microelectronic systems in 2005 and a Ph.D. in 2009 with a thesis on Computational Intelligence applied to Mining and Control of Network Traffic, at CSIC and University of Seville , with Prof. Angel Barriga and Dr. Diego Lopez. During 1999-2003 I worked in the telecommunications and computing industry. From 2004-2007 I was a researcher and assistant lecturer at the University of Seville. From 2008 until May 2009 I worked as a researcher at the Microelectronics Institute of Seville, CSIC.
