Short presentation about me

I am the director of CA Labs Europe based in Barcelona. I am responsible for leading research in Europe that has the potential to impact the strategic direction of CA Technologies products and services. My duties include identifying opportunities within the company that can be transformed into research relationships performed in collaboration with university faculty and students.

I have more than 30 peer-reviewed research publications in the computer field, as well as an accepted patent presenting an invention to improve database management systems engines. I am the author of a book titled "Genetic Query Optimization for Large Databases", as well as two book chapters on data anonymization and graph database storage, respectively.

Prior to joining CA Technologies, I was an associate professor at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), where I performed research related to managing very large data volumes. I received my PhD in May 2007. My PhD studies were funded by IBM through its Center for Advanced Studies (Toronto, Canada), and were focused on very large join query optimization for relational databases. Besides my regular lecturing at UPC, I have also taught master courses related to relational database management systems and data stream processing and mining, at University of Reading (Reading, UK, 2003) and Pontifícia Universidad Javeriana (Bogotá, Colombia, 2011), respectively. Also, I have been the chair of two international workshops: PAVLAD (ACM First International Workshop on Privacy and Anonymity for Very Large Datasets), in conjunction with CIKM 2009; and UIM-GDB (University-Industry Meeting on Graph Databases), in 2011. Finally, I am one of the founders of Sparsity Technologies S.L., a spin-off started at UPC.
