Occupation: Postdoc at Oxford University


Thanks to my internship at Yahoo Labs Barcelona during my PhD studies, I gained experience in crawling, collecting, parsing and processing large datasets in distributed computing environments (e.g., MapReduce, Apache Hadoop) as to identify differences in the way people use, interact and generate content in social media (i.e., Twitter) using tools such as Pig, java, R and python. Currently, I am specially programming in R.
