I earned my Ph.D. degree in artificial intelligence from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). I am the head of the Soft Computing (SOCO) research group and a board member of the Intelligent Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (IDEAI) research Centre at the UPC. I am currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, giving lectures on Computational Intelligence and Advanced Topics in Computational Intelligence at the Artificial Intelligence Master’s degree. My current research interests include fuzzy, neuro-fuzzy, genetic-fuzzy systems and other soft computing hybridization techniques, modelling for prediction and decision support. The application areas include energy, medicine, atmospheric sciences, music, risk management and e-Learning.
