Research Interests


I received my Licentiate degree in Computer Science in July 2008 from the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science and Technologies, University of Carabobo, Venezuela. In October of the same year I enrolled at the University of A Coruna, Spain, in my Master studies, ICT's in Mobile Networks. My masters' dissertation was in the field of cooperation and self-synchronization in wireless sensor networks. Following my master, I started my PhD studies in 2010 at University College Dublin. During my PhD I worked closely with IBM Toronto and Dublin software groups on projects that aimed to optimize the utilization of computer systems in large-scale and heterogeneous environments. After my PhD, I briefly worked as a Data Scientist in Intel Labs, Dublin, on the design and implementation of machine learning algorithms to predict energy consumption at a sub-station level.

I joined Bell Labs in June 2015 as a Researcher in the Autonomous Software System Research group.
