About Me

I am a senior lecturer (Associate Professor) in Networks in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science of Queen Mary University of London. Before joining QMUL, I completed my PhD in Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. In 2010 I received a prize for the best PhD in telecommunications by the Spanish association of Telecommunication Engineers.

I am interested in understanding complex distributed systems (mostly Internet applications), and engineering them to work better. e.g. Cloud applications, with elastic (dynamic) changes, that are interconnected over a network. I am also looking at (Big) large-scale distributed systems that process massive amounts of Data. In this webpage you will find references to my current research projects, and teaching activities.
