Who am I?
Graduated from the University of A Coruña (Spain) in 2006 with a MSc in Computer Engineering, I’ve been working in the computing industry ever since, always with a focus on Open Source Software and Linux-based Operating Systems, which I’ve been interested in since the time I installed my first ever Linux distribution, back in 1998: Red Hat Linux 5.2.
At the end of 2005, I joined Igalia, where I worked as a Linux software engineer in a variety of projects such as Nokia’s Maemo platform, the automatic update system for Litl‘s Webbook, the Linux accessibility stack, Chromium and the WebKit project, until my departure at the end of 2012.
In January 2013 I moved to the UK to join Samsung Research UK, where I worked on performance optimizations for the SmartTV platform, as well as doing upstream development around WebKit and Chromium/Blink as part of my positions in the SmartTV team and the Open Source Group.
Still in the UK, I joined Endless in August 2014 as a member of the desktop team to work on Endless OS (a Linux-based OS designed to make computers accessible to everyone), where I maintained and contributed to several core components of the platform such as the GNOME Shell, Flatpak, WebKit, Chromium, GNOME Initial Setup, the printing subsystem… among others.
Finally, after those few years in the UK, I moved back home (Galicia) in the summer of 2018 and re-joined Igalia, after nearly 6 years since my departure, to join its Chromium team where I currently work full time.
