About

Born in Bilbao, Basque Country. I finished my studies in Computer engineering in 2010 at Deusto University. During 2010-2011 I coursed a MSc in Information Security, at Deusto University. I joined S3Lab in september 2010, a department at Deusto University devoted to research in different areas such as information security (e.g., malware and botnet detection and analysis, spam filtering, social network security), artificial intelligence (e.g. image processing, machine learning, foundry piece fault prediction) and natural language processing (e.g. conversational bots, opinion mining).
