I am a Data Scientist @ Quant AI Lab.

I have a PhD in Software, Systems & Computing focused on mathematical models for software analysis, NLP and AI from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. I completed my PhD while working at the IMDEA Software Institute in Madrid. Before that, I studied a Double Degree in Mathematics and Software Engineering at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
