About me

Last update: 24 October 2018.

My origins are in Castelló de la Plana, where I was born and grew and —thanks to many good teachers— I developed my passion for learning. Nowadays I live in Barcelona, where I arrived in 2007 to study a Dregree in Mathematics and Computer Engineering in Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, specifically in CFIS.

When I finished college I worked for two years as a software engineer in a university spin-off, which was a great experience and allowed me to get in touch with the startup sector. Now I continue my adventure in the field of bioinformatics, doing a PhD in this matter in the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. It consists in boosting the biomedical research using computation, through simulations and the analysis of huge volumes of data. My research is about developing methods to identify mutations in proteins that are the cause of disease.

I'm interested in everything related to informatics, programming and computer security. I'm also very passionate about mathematics and its teaching, politics, scientific dissemination, chess and many more things that you will discover if you decide to visit this blog. My intention is to cover all these topics in a didactic, rigorous, handy and experimental way; I will share those projects that I develop together with other general reflections.

Welcome and I hope you enjoy this project!
