Dr Carlos Gavidia-Calderon

Profile summary

Professional biography

I currently work as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Software Engineering at The Open University

I graduated in 2020 from University College London with a PhD. in Software Engineering. As a postgraduate researcher, I studied cooperation in software development teams using game-theoretic models. I have also a Master's in Computer Science; with a dissertation on ant colony optimisation algorithms applied to computer vision.

As a software engineer, I worked in projects ranging from mobile applications to large-scale information systems. I have also taught courses on programming fundamentals and algorithms to undergraduate engineering students.

Skills: Python Programming, Software Engineering, Optimization Algorithms, Artificial Intelligence, Statistical Data Analysis.
