Profesor Titular de Universidad
Departament de Matemàtica Aplicada y Anàlisi
Universitat de Barcelona


I earned a degree in Computer Science (Licenciatura en Informática) by the Facultad de Informática de Barcelona (FIB) of the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (UPC) in 1995.

I received the 1st Computer Science Universitary Studies Spanish National Award from the Spanish Education and Science Ministry in 1996.

After finishing my degree I entered the IIIA (Artificial Intelligence Research Institute) and stayed there for three years working on my PhD in AI. Then I jumped to Ubilab, a Industrial Research Lab in Switzerland where I stayed one and a half years and then I cofounded iSOCO where I was Chief Technology Officer for three years. That meant little time for research and coding and a lot of time devoted to management so I decided to go back to academia and accepted a position at Universitat de Barcelona where I found enough time to finish my PhD and where I am currently teaching.

I obtained my PhD in Artificial intelligence from the Software Department (LSI) of the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (UPC) in 2003.

I obtained my habilitation in Artificial intelligence in 2007
