Curriculum Vitae

I am currently a researcher in the Department of Computer Science, Saarland University, Germany, hosted by Prof. Jörg Hoffmann.

Before that I was a PhD student in the Planning and Learning Group (PLG) of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. I am about to finish my PhD Thesis: "Symbolic Search and Abstraction Heuristics for Cost-Optimal Planning" under the supervision of Ass. Prof. Carlos Linares López and Prof. Daniel Borrajo.

The main focus of my current work is classical planning, with a special focus on cost-optimal planning. My interests extend to other related Artificial Intelligence areas such as heuristic search in combinatorial domains, machine learning, general game playing and problem solving, constraint satisfaction and optimization, etcetera.
