I enjoy supervising students at Degree (TFG), Master (TFM) and Doctorate (PhD) levels. I am also happy to host post-docs. Please, note I only supervise works related to data analysis.

Current topics of my interest are:

For Degree & Master levels, I also supervise works (TFG/TFM) in connection to the open software projects where I collaborate, and to the courses I teach, the latter in topics like design of experiments and network optimization, and anomaly detection in cybersecurity. A list of potential topics (in Spanish) can be found here.
