I’m a Researcher/Scientist and an Adjunct Instructor at The University of Arizona School of Information. Previously, I worked as a Postdoctoral Associate at the same university from 2017 to 2021, after receiving my PhD from the University of the Basque Country.

My background is in computer science with a specialization in natural language processing. My research interests include information extraction with a focus on the events, their participants, and their context, i.e., when and where the events take place. I also work on domain adaptation searching for solutions to transfer machine learning models across domains. I am especially interested on applying such techniques to clinical documents.
