Reseach Interests

ESE - MSR - OSS

My research interest focuses in Open Source Systems, Mining Software Repositories and Empirical Software Engineering. I like developing tools to help researchers and practitioners in their tasks. My current research work focuses on understanding the Bug Seeding process. Specifically, I analyze the information from code review process and bug tracking systems to understand how defects are introduced and manifested into the source code.

Personal Info

Academic

I holds my degree in Telecomunications Engineering specializing in Telecomunication Systems in the University of Valladolid, Spain. After that, I moved to Madrid to hold my Master in the University Rey Juan Carlos, where I started to learn and be passionate about Software Engineering and Open Source Software.

In 2015 I started my Ph.D. in Empirical Software Engineering at the University King Juan Carlos, Spain, where I was under supervision of Dr. Jesus M. Gonzalez Barahona and Dr. Gregorio Robles.

In 2018 I was working as a visiting researcher at Delft University of Technology and Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, where I was under supervision of with Dr. Andy Zaidman and Dr. Alexander Serebrenik

In 2019 I started as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Waterloo, Canada, where I'm working in Dr. Mei Nagappan's reseach group

Free Time

When forced indoors, I love hiking and running. I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows. I spend free time exploring the latest technolgy advancements.
