I am a Professor (Catedrático de Universidad) and head of the Department of Computing Languages and Systems I at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos. I also am the head of the LITE research group (Laboratory of Information Technologies in Education) and Chairman of the ADIE research association (Asociación para el Desarrollo de la Informática Educativa). I received my “Licenciatura” and my PhD in Computer Science from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in 1985 and 1990.


I have been an instructor of courses on, mainly, programming methodology, programming languages and algorithms. I am currently an instructor in a course on advanced algorithms, of the Degree of Computer Science. You may find two unofficial teaching guides here: on-line, presential.


My main research interests are programming education, software visualization, and educational interactive systems. More information and some current foci of interest:

  • The LITE research group.
  • Selected publications can be found at DBLP, the ACM DL or Google Academic.
  • The iProg research grant, aimed at teaching and learning programing at different educational levels.
  • The SRec system, an animation system of recursion.
  • The GreedEx and OptimEx systems, systems for experimentation with greedy and optimization algorithms, respectively.
