I received the bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of the Basque Country in 2007, and two years later I took my masters degree in Computer Science from the same university. Since 2010, I have been member of the Intelligent Systems Group where I obtained, in 2014, the PhD in Computer Science with the thesis entitled Solving Permutation-based Combinatorial Optimization Problems with Estimation of Distribution Algorithms and Extensions Thereof.

Current Activity

Since 2014 I am lecturer at the University of the Basque Country, first in the department of Applied Mathematics at the Faculty of Science and Technology, and later in the department of Languages and Computer Systems at the School of Engineering of Bilbao.

Proceedings Chair of IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation 2017.

My research interest cover the following topics:

  • Permutation-based combinatorial optimization problems
  • Estimation of distribution algorithms
  • Multi-objectivisation
  • Elementary landscape decomposition
  • Parameter tuning of evolutionary algorithms
  • Parameterized Instance complexity
