About

I am a computer scientist specialized in the domains of databases & distributed systems. My core experience concerns cloud & service based Big Data management & processing.

I currently work as postdoctoral researcher at University of Lyon and the ERIC research lab. I am also associate researcher at the French-Mexican LAFMIA lab, and former researcher of the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, TU Delft and the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory.

I am fellow of the Mexican AMEXCOMP and SNI (level C), and member of the ACM.
