Associate professor, Computer Science Department, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
After studying Chemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, he received a Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge and held postdoctoral positions at Stanford University, at the Université Libre de Bruxelles and at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Other appointments at the International Computer Science Institute at the University of California, Berkeley, and MIT followed.
He has worked on relaxation theory in condensed media, stochastic and thermodynamic theories of nonequilibrium systems, lattice-gas automata, and automatic induction from data. His current research interests include machine learning, quantitative and computational finance, time series analysis and information processing in the presence of noise.
