I am currently a Visiting Researcher at the Intelligent Systems and Networks research group (ISN) of the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London since Sept 2013, where I have been a Research Associate (Sep 2013-Feb 2015) and a Marie Curie Fellow (Sep 2011-Aug 2013). I joined Imperial College, after having been five years at Universitat de Girona as a Research Fellow (2006-2011) and a Postdoc Fellow at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University (2004-2006).
I obtained my BSc (1999) and PhD (2003) in Computer Science from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Barcelona).
My research background is on resource allocation mechanisms in multi-agent systems and its applictions on diverse areas such as robotics, auction mechanisms, and most recently in self-organised resource allocation. I'm also interested in importing ideas from Social Sciences and apply them to Computer Science, in particular those ideas concerning justice in resource distribution.
