I am a Lecturer in Computer Science (Assistant Professor) with the School of Computer Science, Electrical/Electronic Engineering, and Engineering Maths, University of Bristol. I am also member of Bristol's Intelligent Systems Laboratory, where I lead the research theme on Decision Support and Recommender Systems
I got my PhD in Computer Science (Honors) in the University of Jaén (Spain), in 2014. I am currently a Lecturer in Computer Science with the Merchant Venturer's School of Engineering, in the University of Bristol (Bristol, United Kingdom). 

Highlights of my main research interests and skills include:
  • Decision-Making and Decision Support Systems under Uncertainty (Uncertainty theories in Decision-Making, Aggregation and Preference Modelling, Multi-criteria and Group Decision-Making, Consensus Reaching)
  • Recommender Systems (Collaborative Filtering, Knowledge-based and Context-aware, Multi-view Data Fusion in RecSys, Group Recommender approaches and consensus building in RecSys, Security in Recommender Algorithms).
  • Autonomous Intelligent Systems (Agent and Multi-Agent Online Planning, Multi-Agent Cooperation for Decision-Making, Approximate and Reinforcement Learning Algorithms, Knowledge management, Reasoning with Uncertainty)
  • Data Science with Applications to Data-Driven Decision Support and Autonomous Decision-Making (IT Security, e-Commerce, Supervisory Control, Supply Chain Management, Robotics)
  • Intelligent Information Systems
  • Opinion Dynamics and Opinion Formation

Interested in knowing a bit more about my workplace? Situated in the southwest part of England, the University of Bristol is:
World top 50 University (QS Ranking 2016)
Top 5 UK University with leading employers (2015)
