About Me

I am an associate professor (Docent/PhD) in Software Engineering at the Department of Software Engineering at BT in the Software Engineering Department. I am also associate member of the Laboratoire de Recherche sur les Technologies du Commerce Électronique (LATECE) in the Université du Quebec à Montréal (UQÀM).

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV) in 2014. In addition I also received my Master degree in “Software Engineering, Formal Methods and Information Systems” in 2011, my Bachelor degree in Computer Science in 2010 and the Engineer degree in Computer Systems Engineering in 1994 all of them from the UPV.

My current research focuses on Asset Management, Technical Debt, and Software Process Improvement, with emphasis on empirical research done in collaboration with several industrial partners (e.g., Spotify, Ericsson, FortNox, or Swedbank, among others). My current research aims to develop innovative solutions that help software development organizations monitor and improve the fitness of the assets used in the inception, development, delivery, or evolution of software-intensive systems and services and measure how well those assets support value creation. In the last years, I have also performed research to develop innovative teaching and learning methods for improving the Software Engineering Education body of knowledge.

I have published and presented more than 45 research works in different venues related to the aforementioned research topics. I have also co-authored four publications reporting pedagogical contributions to the Software Engineering education, being one of the conference papers awarded with the best paper award. In addition, I have sought to serve to the scientific community. I have been an active member of the Software Engineering Community, having served as a reviewer in several highly ranked journals such as Transactions on Software Engineering, Transactions in Service Computing, Software and Systems Modelling, or Requirements Engineering Journal, among others. I have participated in different program committees of international conferences, International Conference on Technical Debt Conference (Techdebt), the Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (EUROMICRO), the International Conference on Model-Driven Engineering and Software Development (MODELSWARD), Requirements Engineering conference (RE), and Conferencia Iberoamericana de Software Engineering (CIBSE), among others.
