I am a postdoctoral researcher doing a 2-year stay at the Information School of the University of Sheffield. I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Almeria, which I completed in 2020. Since then, I worked for one year at the University of Almeria on a Radiotherapy project until I came here.

I have published several papers and attended more than 25 international, national and educational conferences. I have successfully acquired over €187,788 in competitive calls to support my research and several awards and mention (€7,300). Among them, I want to highlight the recent (2022) Research Awards of the Scientific Informatics Spanish Society and the BBVA Foundation.

Research interests

My research focuses principally on developing novel software and methodologies for a range of important applications in chemoinformatics and radiotherapy. In that sense, I have developed different software versions of OptiPharm and a multi-objective version, Multi-Pharm and web servers (BRUSELAS), among others.

I am interested in supervising projects in research related to my aforementioned areas of interest and experience. I am particularly interested in supervising work on computer science, specifically in the implementation of new algorithms as well as on chemoinformatics.
