I recieved my master's degree in Biochemistry from the Univesity of the Basque Country in 1999 and, after two years working, I took a bachelor's degree in Computer Science at the same university. In 2004 I earned the bachelor's degree and in 2008 the PhD in Computer Science.

After two years as a Post-Doc researcher at the Intelligent Systems Group, in 2011 I won my current lecturer position at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence of the University of the Basque Country.

Currently I am leading a reseach project funded by the DGT (spanish traffic agency) aimed at the prediction of car accidents in the basque road network. I am also supervising four PhD students and several bachelor and master thesis.
