Academic Information

My name is David Villegas. I am a PhD candidate at FIU (Florida International University), in Miami. My research interests fall in the areas of Distributed Systems, Resource Management and Networking. Particularly, I am interested in the instantiation of groups of virtual resources across clouds. I am planning to graduate in Fall of 2012.

Life Facts

I was born in the city of Terrassa, Barcelona, in the Spanish area known as Catalonia. As most Catalans, I have a high esteem for the Catalan language and culture. However, my family has its roots in the southern part of Spain, known as Andalusia. I also love Andalusian music and food, which had a great influence in my upbringing. My wife was born in the small town of Jauja in Peru, so Peruvian culture is also a big part of my life.
