Currently, I am involved in standardization activities on network virtualization, mainly in ETSI ISG NFV and 3GPP. Network virtualization is a game changer for the telecommunications industry. Evangelizing network virtualization and linking community specification efforts with our network development requirements and network architecture is what I do.
I graduated with a PhD in Computer Networks (Telematics Engineering) in 2011, from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC, BarcelonaTech). In my thesis dissertation I proposed and assessed a number of network architectures, protocols and algorithms for the provisioning of both connectionless and connection-oriented services on sub-wavelength all-optical networks.
In the past, I was involved in multiple and diverse national, European and US funded projects. I had the opportunity to get to know other countries and work closely with some amazing people during my visiting research stays in UK and US.
My professional interests include, but are not limited to, mobile networking, optical networking, control plane design, network virtualization, software-defined networking and converged fixed-wireless networks. Whenever possible, I tackle engineering and research activities both from an analytical and experimental perspective.
Last, but not least, I am an ex-Fulbright grantee (2010-2011) and I am committed to promote mutual understanding among different cultures.
