Before joining Amazon as Machine learning scientist I was researcher associate at the Machine Learning group of the University of Sheffield. I was involved in the Recombinant CHO Cell Project together with Neil Lawrence and David James. Mi role was to design an apply new Bayesian optimization methods to scale the production of drugs using hamster cells.
Before moving to Sheffield, I was post-doc in the University of Groningen working with Ernst Wit and Matthias Heinneman involved in the project “Network-based statistical inference for replicatively aging in yeast". In this project we studied the causes of aging in yeast. My reseach there involved the develpement of new Machine Learning techniques to understand the dynamics of biological systems.
I got my PhD in Mathematical Engineering at Carlos III University of Madrid under the supervision of Alberto Muñoz. In my thesis I worked on kernel methods for visulization, cluster and classification problems.
