I am a researcher at the Networking and Emerging Optimization group at the Department of Computer Science at University of Malaga (Spain). I received my BS. degree in Computer Engineering and my MS. in Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence from University of Malaga (Spain), where I worked for three years as a researcher assistant. In 2017, I received a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Polytechnique Montréal (Canada) and my thesis was nominated for best thesis award. In 2018 I held a postdoctoral fellowship at Concordia University (Canada), where I worked on search-based software engineering for the Internet of Things (IoT).
My research focuses on search-based software engineering. I am also interested in the use of metaheuristics to solve multidisciplinary real-world problems of interest for our society and computer science. I have published several papers in ISI indexed journals (such as EMSE, IEEE TSE, and Evolutionary Computation) and conference papers in IEEE ICPC, MCDM, IEEE SANER, and ACM ESEC/FSE.
I have co-organized the International Conference on Multiple Criteria Decision Making, in 2013. I am on the organizing committee of the 1st International Workshop on Software Engineering Research & Practices for the Internet of Things (SERP4IoT), co-located with ICSE 2019. I am also on the program committee of the Real World Applications (RWA) track of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO), from 2016 up today.
