I am Ph.D. Student in the Electronic Engineering Department at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid since October 2012 under the guidance of Prof. José M. Moya and Prof. José L. Ayala. Prof. Rajkumar Buyya from The University of Melbourne is also my external mentor.

My research focuses on energy optimization and modeling of complex systems and the development of energy efficient techniques for cloud computing data centers.

I received my B.Sc and M.Sc. degree in 2011 in Telecommunication Engineering and a M.Sc. in Electronic Systems Engineering in 2012 from the Technical University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid), Spain.

I joined CLOUDS Lab. in October 2014 as a visitor student at the University of Melbourne under the supervision of Prof. Rajkumar Buyya. My research stay was sponsored by the European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation (HiPEAC).

Currently, I am a Visiting Ph.D. Student at the Tokyo Institute of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Satoshi Matsuoka. This research stay is sponsored by the European Commission under the Erasmus Mundus Euro-Asian Sustainable Energy Development programme.

My current research focuses on the design and development of thermal and power-aware algorithms to optimize the energy consumption of Cloud infrastructures.
