Short Bio

I received my Master of Science in Software Engineering from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in August 2013. From March 2014, I have been a doctoral student and research assistant in the Requirements Engineering Research Group (RERG) at the University of Zurich.

Research

Developing new techniques for optimizing and enhancing visualization, navigation and manipulation of large graphical models with application to requirement elicitation using small screen devices like tablets.

Research Interests

  • Requirements engineering
  • Software/program visualization
  • Human computer interaction
  • Big data analysis
  • Empirical studies
