Since 2019
Senior researcher at Cybersecurity team

I designed and developed several decentralized applications for a range of projects where blockchain (or more generally distributed ledger) technologies were used to ensure an immutable, agreed and shared state between untrusted parties.

  • Smart-contracts for Ethereum with Solidity.
  • ÐApps in Javascript.
Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain
Researcher at the Big Data Architectures team

I designed and developed several projects where Internet connectivity was provided to industrial equipment (e.g. press machines, weighing scales or remote controls). The webapps I built let customers monitor their equipment, actuate over it and exploit the data they send to guarantee their correct maintenance.

  • Data visualizations in Single-page applications using React and Redux. Interaction with devices using websockets and MQTT protocol.
  • Web APIs using AWS API Gateway or Springboot and integrating several authentication services.
  • Data ingest using Spark structured streaming, Apache Kafka and AWS Lambda functions.
  • Storage using both relational and NoSQL databases like PostgreSQL, DynamoDB o InfluxDB.
  • Automated deployment using Serverless framework, Maven and Docker containers.

2008-2014, 2014-2015
Research Associate, Research Assistant

I installed and managed a multi-node OpenStack cloud. This cloud hosted the components of a web application (a remote laboratory) ensuring its high availability. I co-designed and implemented an authentication and authorization mechanism for hardware-constrained devices. I ported the CLIPS rule-based reasoner to Android. Additional skills: team working, self-learning, agile methodologies, working to deadlines & problem assessing and solving.
