Short Bio

In January of 2007, I received a degree in Bilingual Computer Engineering from the University Carlos III of Madrid. My thesis, Modeling and Indexing Musical Files to Allow Music Reuse, was graded as excellent cum laude. Meanwhile, I collaborated with the Department of Computer Science and obtained a small scholarship with the Department of Telematics. I also obtained an Erasmus scholarship to study at the Åland Polytechnic (Finland), from January to July of 2006.

Since January of 2007, I was a PhD student in Computer Science at Virginia Tech (USA). As part of my Graduate Research Assistantship, I worked for the Research Methods Consortium in the National Capital Region. In June of 2008 I went back to the University Carlos III of Madrid with a small scholarship, and received a Masters Degree in Computer Science and Technology. Since January of 2009 I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Department of Computer Science, while working on my PhD dissertation.

In October of 2013 I finished my PhD with a dissertation titled Evaluation in Audio Music Similarity, which was graded as excellent cum laude. Right after, I spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, with an A4U Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. In October of 2015 I received a Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral fellowship from the Spanish Government to continue my research.
