Biography

I studied Mathematics in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Madrid, Spain), and finished my degree with a specialism in Theoretical Computing. On 2010 I came to the UK to complete an MSc on Computing (Theory) at Imperial College London, where I won the Corporate Partnership programme Awards for Academic Excellence. I did my MSc project under the supervision of Dr James Brotherston and Prof. Philippa Gardner. The main topic of said project was reasoning in a Separation Logic style about a finite memory model.

I am currently a doctoral student under the supervision of Prof. Ian Horrocks and Dr. Bernardo Cuenca Grau, and a member of the KRR group. My work focuses on developing MORe, a reasoner that exploits module extraction techniques to efficiently compute classification of ontologies written in expressive description logics.
