Research

My research work focuses on applications of machine learning and data towards efficient computing, quality of service on web-services, and autonomic Cloud applications management. I have been working at the LARCA Research Group (Laboratori d'Algorí­smica Relacional, Complexitat i Aprenentatge) at LSI-UPC and also in the HPC-Autonomic (High Performance Computing Group) at DAC-UPC. Also I am at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center BSC, in the group of Autonomic Business Systems, part of the BSC-Microsoft team.
