Laura M. Castro
Software Engineer and Teacher in Galicia, España
I was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1980 and moved to Galicia, located in the north west coast of the country, when I was in my teens. I went to high school in Santiago de Compostela and attended college in A Coruña, where I now live and work. I have also lived for short periods of time in the US (Houston, Texas) and Sweden (Göteborg).
I am a professor at the University of A Coruña, where I have been teaching since 2005. At the moment, I give courses on Software Architecture and Software Validation to 3rd and 4th year CS students.
I also perform research in the areas of software testing (automated, model and property-based testing), applied to software in general, and distributed, concurrent, functional systems in particular (mainly working with Erlang/OTP and Elixir). I am a member of the MADS (Models and Applications of Distributed Systems) research group, and of the Education working group of the Erlang Ecosystem Foundation (EEF).
