I am a Systems Scientist in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. My research interests lie in the intersection of formal methods and software engineering. I am particularly interested in self-adaptation and self-management, which are key requirements in many modern software-intensive systems.

My research is done in the context of the ABLE group, at the Institute for Software Research. I am also involved as a co-instructor of the Models of Software Systems course (17-651) at the Master of Software Engineering (MSE).


I graduated from the University of Granada (Spain) in 2003 and worked for two years as a software engineer before starting graduate school. After receiving my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Malaga (Spain) in 2009, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at INRIA Rhône-Alpes (France). Before joining CMU in 2013, I also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at CISUC, the Center for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra (Portugal).
