I'm assistant professor at the Faculty of Computer Science, Multimedia and Telecommunications. Before (2015-2019) I was postdoctoral fellow in the SOM Research Lab at IN3 UOC, in Barcelona, Spain. From 2011 to 2015, I was part of Inria as postdoctoral researcher in the AtlanMod team (now NaoMod, at the Ecole des Mines de Nantes, France. I got my PhD in June 2011 in the Modelum team reaseach team, in Murcia, Spain. My advisor was Jesus Garcia Molina and I defined domain-specific languages to obtain models from several technical spaces.

My research interests are mainly focused on Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), Model-Driven Modernization (MDM) and Domain-Specific Languages. I am also interested in the applicacion of ADM specifications (e.g., ASTM, KDM and SMM metamodels) as well as other topics such as bridging technical spaces, collaborative development, end-user engineering or mobile application reengineering.
