Starting in 2011, I enrolled in the double degree program in Mathematics and Software Engineering at the University of Barcelona, which I completed in 2017 and received the Extraordinary Degree Award (average mark >9.0) alongside it.
In 2018, I enrolled in the MIRI (Master in Innovation and Research in Informatics) program at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, specializing in High Performance Computing. For my second year of the Master's I studied abroad at the University of Potsdam through the Erasmus program, where I also took classes and completed my Master's Thesis at the Hasso-Plattner-Institut.
My main interest in pursuing this Master's degree was gaining a better understanding of how to exploit the performance capabilities of existing and near-term hardware. My focus lies mainly on efficient execution in off-the-shelf hardware rather than custom hardware design.
In parallel with my academic career, I have also worked as a programmer with various companies for about 6 years. This has allowed me to gain proficiency developing software, by working with a team, interacting with large code bases of several hundreds of thousands of lines of code, applying code quality and testing methodologies, and coming in contact with a plethora of technologies and how they're used and integrated in real projects.
In 2020, I completed my Master's Degree. Since then, I have been working at UXLand on backend & DevOps roles for various projects and high-traffic web applications.
I am a native speaker of Catalan and Spanish and speak English proficiently. I also speak German at the CEFR B2 level.
