He started his career doing a final project in the university in collaboration with HP, being one of the bests projects that HP offered for the students. That project gave him the opportunity to work in HP, company in which he was working for 4 years in a Health Care Information System Project (HCIS). During his work in HP, he has been working in some of the most important hospitals in Spain and Europe, some of them like Gregorio Marañon or 12 de Octubre in Madrid, or Sant Joan de Deu in Barcelona. His strong participation in Barcelona was quite relevant and HP rewarded him with the Golden Award, prize that the company gives to the bests employees of the year.

Before the incorporation to BISITE, Alberto was working in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, city which he moved to after his time in HP. He was working for Gemalto, probably the most important company about software security in the world, with important international projects like e-passport. His work in the company was in the development of a strong authentication server (CAS), used by companies like ING or Amazon. Regardless of his professional career, Alberto have been improving his skills continuously, getting some certifications like Java by Oracle, ITIL Foundations and passing important courses about SCRUM. Nowadays, he is studying a post degree in Visual Analytics and Big Data in the International University of La Rioja.

In BISITE, Alberto will be a researcher in 2 projects whose principal investigator is Juan Manuel Corchado. First one, SMART.EX is about data analysis in money exchange, just to identify common patterns and detect fraud. The second project, GISCLOUD, is about analysis and vectorization of big images taken from satellites.
