Daniel loves identifying opportunities to exploit his knowledge on AI and data mining to provide innovative and imaginative solutions to both existing problems and new unperceived challenges.
His research interest have evolved along the years from behavioural game theory and complex systems dynamics to urban computing, using different sort of machine learning and data mining techniques to overcome the scientific questions. Daniel has recently collaborated with Barcelona Digital Technology Centre where he has acted as an Urban Researcher exploring the SmartCities field, targeting specifically in the citizen as a sensor and the provision of newly identified services in this ubiquitous era. His research has been presented in several important conferences such as ECCS, NetMob or NoSQLMatters Conference.
Daniel brings a balance between his scientific commitment to problem resolution with his knowledge of engineering tools to provide with functional and efficient working prototypes.
The work developed during his PhD thesis at the IIIA-CSIC resulted in two different awards (IFAAMAS-11 Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award and Outstanding PhD Thesis - UAB Computer Science Department), result from his hard work and research stays at different international centers (King's College London, the ISTC-CNR, and the University of Tulsa).
