About Me

Profile Pic

In 2023, I joined the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) as a Research Engineer in Digital Health for the IT Expertise in Health Data (ITX HD) team of the Data Integration and Analysis Unit led by the Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO) Dr. Maximilian Fünfgeld. Additionally, from 2021 onwards, I teach Applied Philosophy of Science and Data Ethics at the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg. Since 2022, I am a senior member of IEEE.

Between 2018 and 2023, I worked as postdoctoral researcher in the Bioinformatics Core Group led by Dr. Reinhard Schneider at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (L.C.S.B) in the University of Luxembourg. My duties at LCSB entailed a variety of tasks, including writing papers, guidelines, designing solutions for clinical studies and programmes, programming IT platforms, data analysis, data wrangling, ad hoc code scripting for projects and studies, IT management, system administration of IT resources, etc.

Previously, I worked at U.A.M researching high performance solutions for big data analysis as well as anomaly detection methodologies. I received my B.Sc (2013), M.Sc (2014) and Ph.D. (2018 with cum laude and industrial mentions) degrees in Computer Science Engineering from U.A.M. In 2012 I joined the High Performance Computing and Networking Research Group (HPCN) led by Dr. Javier Aracil, first as a student and later as a researcher as part of the Network of Excellence InterNet Science european project.

During my Ph.D I continued my work in the HPCN group as technical researcher for the project TRÁFICA and the European projects Fed4Fire and dReDBox, among others. At the same time, I worked at Naudit applying my research on projects with different enterprises. I've also been a teaching assistant on different subjects at the E.P.S.
