Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in Data Science, having been appointed in 2018. My research interests are in statistical and machine learning methods, with focus on modelling large-scale, highly structured and/or relational data (multivariate time series, graphs, networks, etc). The usual application domains of my research are drug development, bioinformatics, and healthcare.

In 2008, I was awarded a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from the Technical University of Catalonia, Spain. Since then I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and at the University of Manchester, followed by a lectureship in Health Informatics at the University of Keele and in Computer Science at Manchester Metropolitan University.
