Brief bio

I got my PhD from the University of Seville, Spain in 2012. My advisors were Prof. David Ruiz and Prof. Rafael Corchuelo. During my PhD, I visited Prof. Alberto Pan at the University of A Coruña, Spain, Dr. Paolo Papotti at Roma Tre University, Italy, and Prof. Christian Bizer at Free University of Berlin, Germany. From 2013 to 2015, I worked as a postdoc at the University of Idaho, USA, collaborating with Prof. Hasan Jamil and Prof. H.V. Jagadish.

Students GOAL guys

Research experiences for undergraduate and graduate students. Mentoring is the most important component of every teacher-scholar. I have advised several independent studies of undergraduate students who were interested in having their first research experience. I usually attract these students by introducing research-related topics in my undergraduate courses. I have also advised several master capstone projects, some of them led to workshop and main-conference publications. I have advised female and Hispanic students. Several of my students have got first-job positions at Amazon, IBM, or Microsoft.

College & Careers (1) College & Careers (2)

K-12 outreach. I am applying our research in program comprehension to deliver personalized student feedback in programming courses. I am collaborating with Jamie Fagan@Webster Thomas High School and Sage Miller@Webster Schroeder High School with a special interest in Advanced Placement Computer Science (APCS). I have also participated in outreach programs at RIT, such as Girls Who Code visits, or College & Careers.
