Programming

C/C++, Java, C#, R, Python, Matlab, SQL and no-SQL.

I have working experience in all of them. Specially in python, check my open source projects.

Education

“The education is the one you provide yourself”  – Isaac Asimov –

2020-2021 MBA at EAE / Barcelona University

Master in business administration.

2012-2013 Master in RAMS

RAMS stands for Reliability, Maintainability, Availability and Safety. Studied at the university of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria.

The master thesis subject was the reliability calculation in medium voltage grids (Supervised by Iberdrola personnel).

2004-2011 Industrial engineering  (Equivalent to a master degree)

Industrial engineering, with electric specialization at the university of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria.

As formulated in the Spanish academic schemes, industrial engineer with the electric specialization is the top electric engineering degree and it is equivalent to a master degree.

The final thesis subject was the scaling of a robotic vehicle so that it could behave as a real car and be a platform for research. It took me a while since I had to build the prototype.

Courses

I have taken official courses on:

  • Computational finance (Georgia tech)
  • Technology commercialization and valuation, University of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria.
  • Wind power and associated installations, Economical promotion society of Gran Canaria.
  • Energy efficiency and energy audits in buildings and industry, Economical promotion society of Gran Canaria.
  • Numerical simulation and optimization, University of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria.

I have learnt plenty of other things by myself using the web. One of these is Machine learning.

Languages

Native Spanish, English as the usual working language.
