I am a postdoctoral fellow working in the CORAL group with Prof. Manuela Veloso. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M), Spain, in 2003, advised by Prof. Daniel Borrajo. I received my B.Sc. in Computer Science in 1999 also from UC3M. Since '99 I became assistant and associate professor of the Computer Science Department at UC3M. In the summer and fall of 2000, I was a visiting student at the Center for Engineering Science Advanced Research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Tennessee), advised by Prof. Lynne E. Parker.


My research interests are machine learning and planning. My PhD thesis is about Reinforcement Learning in continuous state spaces. I also have worked in supervised learning, specifically in Nearest Prototype Classification. Some of the application domains that I have used are robot soccer, multi robot systems, adaptive educational systems, and tourism support tools.
