About me

my picture

I'm a professor (catedràtic d'universitat) at the Department of Computer Science of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), in Barcelona. Since 2023 I'm also an ICREA Academia researcher.

My research interests include the theory of computation, the applications of mathematical logic to computer science, and the use of probabilistic methods in computer science and combinatorics.

Over the years I have taught several courses on algorithms, data strutures, computational complexity theory, computability theory, automata theory, logic programming, discrete mathematics, and introductory programming to students of the computer science and engineering degrees at FIB, to students of the mathematics degree at FME, as well as to students of the master in pure and applied logic at MPAL.

My research group

I am a member of the ALBCOM Research Group and of Centre de Recerca Matemàtica. In the period 2015-2020 I was the principal investigator of the ERC-CoG project AUTAR: A Unified Theory of Algorithmic Relaxations, funded by the research funding agency of the European Commission (ERC).
