Overview


My background is focused on modelling and testing both cloud computing systems and HPC (High Performance Computing) environments. This also includes topics such as formal modelling of cloud systems, performance evaluation of highly distributed systems and testing distributed systems and applications.
At present I am working at Testing and Performance Evaluation research group in the Computer Science Faculty of the Complutense University of Madrid. Currently, I am working in a project supported by the Spanish ministry of Economy and Competitiveness running from January 2019 to December 2021. This project is aimed to design and develop techniques for modelling and testing cloud computing systems. I was important contributor of 15 research projects co-funded, among others, by the Carlos III University of Madrid, Complutense University of Madrid and the Spanish Government Grant.
I am also involved in the development of SIMCAN, a simulation platform aimed to model and simulate cloud computing systems and HPC environments.
