I am a Computer Science Engineer, and completed my engineering studies at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru. During my last semester at this university, I had the opportunity to participate in an exchange program at the Carlos III University of Madrid (Spain). I established in Madrid where I also completed my studies on Computer Science, with a major in Artificial Intelligence.

I received my master degree in Advanced Hardware and Software at the King Juan Carlos University of Spain. Moreover. Thanks to these experiences I developed a genuine interest in Bioinformatics. I obtained an Internship at the Center for Biological Research of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC, Spanish National Research Council), in the area of Computer Science. 

Continuing my career specialization, I decided  to accept the stimulating challenge to work and live in UK as a EI member. Currently, I work in the design and implementation of the infrastructure that tracks impact metrics for bioinformatics services across the ELIXIR network. Implementation and design of a registry of metrics and monitoring, development of web interfaces that facilitates access, designing and implementing all aspects of the technology stack, working both server-side and client-side; responsible for supporting the ELIXIR bioinformatics.
