José Alberto Hernández completed the five-year degree in Telecommunications Engineering at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Madrid, Spain) in 2002, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Loughborough University (Leics, United Kingdom) in 2005. From 2005 to 2009, he was a postdoctoral researcher and teaching assistant at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, where he participated in a number of both national and european research projects concerning the modeling and performance evaluation of communication networks, and particularly the optical burst switching technology. In 2009, he moved to Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, where he became an associate professor. He has published more than 60 articles in both journals and conference in-proceedings. His research interests include the areas at which mathematical modeling and computer networks overlap. He is the co-author of book: "Probabilistic modes for computer networks: Tools and solved problems", with Pablo Serrano.
