Adrián Arnaiz-Rodríguez

Artificial Intelligence Researcher

ELLIS Alicante

I am a Spanish boy born in 97. I am a Computer Scientist, with a Master’s in Data Science, focused on my PhD in ML at ELLIS lab in Alicante Unit and I will visit MPI-SWS as part of the ELLIS PhD & PostDoc program. I am advised by Dr. Nuria Oliver, Dr. Manuel Gómez Rodríguez and Dr. Francisco Escolano.

I’ve mainly worked in ML and DL applied to life science, as in my Bachelor’s and Master’s Thesis - both with outstanding results (honours) -. Besides, I also research in network science and graph theory and leading to some conference papers as well.

However, I am passionate about many other fields of AI, thus, we will be sharpening the main topic of the PhD in the coming months. My passion for research and AI started in 2018 when I was awarded a research scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Education in order to carry out my BSc thesis at ADMIRABLE Burgos’ University research group which, among more works, led me to get the BSc Extraordinary academic mention. I’ve also been awarded in 2021 a Spanish FPU fellowship, which I had to decline due to scholarship incompatibilities.

Although I have mostly worked in AI applications, I am also keen on deepening in theoretical concepts of each topic, with a great interest in the most intrinsic and mathematical implications of the algorithms enjoying when it makes me work up a sweat.

Last but not least, I love to spend time playing guitar 🎸 and clarinet and also sweat a bit cycling 🚲 and playing soccer ⚽.
