My Resume


PhD of Statistical Data Analysis in Empirical Software Engineering

2023 - Present

University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland

Currently, I am investigating the state-of-the-art data analysis approaches adopted in the Empirical Software Engineering domain. With some scientific articles already published, I am looking forward to publishing a Systematic Literature Review based on my investigation.

Master of Science in Statistical Data Analytics

2021 - 2023

Tampere University, Tampere, Finland

Application of computational statistics within the field of Data Science. Among the disciplines learnt during these studies are Time Series Analysis, Scientific Computing in diverse programming languages, Advanced Statistical Modelling & Bayesian Analysis.

Bachelor of Economics

2016 - 2020

University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain
