Experience

 CERN Doctoral Student Programme

CERN, Geneva, Switzerland (Nov. 2019 - Now)

Elaboration of my Ph.D. thesis on Privacy Preserving Techniques for Deep Learning. It involves the development and research of Homomorphic Encryption, Secure Multiparty Computation, Differential Privacy and Federated Learning in its application to Deep Learning.

 CERN Summer Student Programme

CERN, Geneva, Switzerland (Jun. 2018 - Sep. 2018)

Development of a Readout and Management System for Radiation Detection Sensors. Gathering requirements from the project description and other users of the system. Setting up an embedded web server on an Arduino YUN (IoT device). Performing stress tests to guarantee minimal resilience and reliability of the server. Creation of a minimal web application able to run on such a small platform.

Research Assistant for C++ 20 Contract Specification Development

University Carlos III of Madrid, Madrid, Spain (Sep. 2017 - Jun. 2018)

Implementation of the P0542R5 specification Implementation of Contract Based Programming for the C++20 release on Clang compiler, following the C++ Standard Specification. Building proofs of concept of the different features. Testing and performance evaluation.}
