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 an Associate Professor at the University of A Coruña, where I have been teaching since 2005. At the moment, I am a lecturer on Software Architecture and Software Validation.
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, now starting to dive into Elixir). I am a member of the MADS (Models and Applications of Distributed Systems) research group.
I love dancing and solving puzzles. I am a constant learner. I am a light traveler, always keen on going to new places. I don't read as much as I would like to, and I watch^H^Hused to watch tons of TV series (before my son was born).
I believe we can make the world a better place for everyone without destroying it. I am committed to it.
