After a period working at the University of Barcelona (UB) as Professor of Statistics and as Director of the R&D Division of the UB Computer Science Center, I joined IBM in 1989 as Researcher at the Scientific Center of IBM-Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM).

From 1990 to 1995 I was Director of Operations and Projects first in the Knowledge Engineering Institute (IIC IBM-UAM) and later in LAB2000 (IBM Software Development Lab).

In 1996 I joined the Consulting and System Integration Division of IBM as Project Manager and later I started my activities as Resource Deployment Manager in IBM Global Services (GBS), working for different sectors and business units.

In 2005 I joined the IBM Southwest Europe GBS IOT (International Operations Team) as Capacity Manager. From 2012 until 2013 I was appointed as Resource and Capacity Management Leader for the SPGI Region (Spain, Portugal, Greece and Israel) and in 2014 as Europe Capacity Manager for BA&S (Business Analytics & Strategy) Services.

In 2015, with other partners, I founded the company VUCAtime that offers consulting services of People Analytics.
