Professional experience

Founder & CEO, Optimus Price – 2017 – Present
Helping retailers and brands to increase their margins with the AI of Optimus Price.
I built an AI-powered B2B SaaS. Raised €2M in funding. Closed deals with multinational companies such as Nestle, eBay or
Telefónica. Hired a team of 17 people, including an M&A with another startup. In direct supervision of data, tech, and product.
Founder, Puput – 2014 – 2017
Puput let you to communicate with any cellphone in the world, for free.
The founders spent two years doing R+D, patenting the invention, developing a product, and selling it. The technology
was attractive, media reception was excellent and we got featured on national TV. The project had revenues but didn't get
enough traction, so we decided to close it and learn from our mistakes.
PhD student, Barcelona Supercomputing Center – 2007–2014
I researched neural network and stochastic models to predict biological structures. I worked with protein-drug systems, DNA and RNA and genomic analysis both for mammals and viruses. I developed a wide range of Big Data tools deployed on High-
Performance Computing environments and collaborated with researchers from different groups, both computational and experimental.
