About Me 

I am Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) in Spain. I received my Ph.D in Computer Science from the UPV in 2004. My main areas of expertise are quality assurance in model-driven engineering, empirical assessment of software modeling approaches and the integration of usability in software development. I was visiting professor at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute, (USA) in 2010 and 2012, the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) in 2007 and 2017, and the Ghent University (Belgium) in 2004. I leaded and participated in several R&D and industry-sponsored research projects. In particular, I leaded the MULTIPLE (Mutimodeling approach for quality-aware software product lines) project funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation with close collaboration with the Rolls-Royce Software Centre of Excellence. I am currently leading the Spanish Network of Excellence on Software Quality and Sustainability, and the Adapt@Cloud project aimed at providing a user-centred framework for supporting the dynamic adaptation and evolution of cloud-based systems. I have (co)authored over 130 peer-reviewed publications. I am Associate Editor for IEEE Software, responsible for Software Quality. I am on the editorial board for the Springer journal Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM). I have served as General Co-Chair of ACM/IEEE MODELS 2014 and I am currently the Vice Chair for the MODELS Steering Committee.
