I'm a Lecturer at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), where I study Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and secure protocols on top of blockchain based cryptocurrencies. Apart from cryptocurrencies and privacy, I am also interested in machine learning (specifically for relational domains and in adversarial settings), cryptography and graph theory.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV). I did my PhD studies at both the Department of Information and Communications Engineering (dEIC) in Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and at the Computer Security and Industrial Cryptography group (COSIC) in Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KULeuven). My advisors were Dr. Jordi Herrera-Joancomartí, Dr. Claudia Diaz, and Dr. Bart Preneel. My PhD thesis was focused on privacy in Online Social Networks.

I obtained my Master’s degree in Advanced Computer Science at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. My master thesis was developed during a research stay at COSIC. Before that, I graduated as Computer Engineer also at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona .
