About Me

avatar

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Queen Mary University of London, UK. I received my Ph.D. degree in computer architecture from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain, in 2016. I became a teaching assistant at Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, in 2017.

Research Interest

My current research focuses on automatic program repair, in particular genetic improvement, generation of fix patterns, and application of repair tools in industry.
