Evaluating experimental results in the field of computer systems is a challenging task, mainly due to the many changes in software and hardware that computational environments go through. As part of my thesis work, we have developed Popper, an experimentation workflow to make it easier to validate scientific claims in systems research. Besides my thesis work, I have also worked in the subject of Exascale I/O and Software-Defined storage/networks.

I’m originally form Mexico and came to the US in 2006 after getting my B.S. in Computer Science from Universidad de Sonora. From 2006 to 2010 I worked as a research associate in the Database Research Lab at HP Labs. My goal in life is to make a difference through science.
