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.
