A. Carrasco was born in Barcelona, Spain, the 21st of November of 1958. He
earned the Engineer degree in Electrical Engineering from Universitat
Politècnica de Catalunya
in 1981, and the MSc.
degree in Computer Science from Stanford University and the Doctor Engineer
degree from Universitat Politècnica
de Catalunya, both in 1987. Since 1988 he has been
Associate Professor ("Profesor Titular")
at the Electronics Engineering Department of Universitat
Politècnica de Catalunya.
He is the autor of about 60 papers in refereed
journals and conference proceedings and currently leads a research team on. Stochastic
Modeling of Fault-tolerant Systems. He is a Senior member of IEEE.

Carrasco's research activities deal with the development of techniques and
tools for performance, dependability and performability
evaluation of digital systems using stochastic processes. Most of his research
has to do with the development of bounding techniques and efficient transient
analysis algorithms to deal with large continuous time Markov models of fault-tolerant
systems. He has also participated in the design and implementation of a tool,
METFAC-2.1, for Markovian modeling where Prof.
Carrasco integrates his algorithms.
Carrasco enjoys hicking and other outdoor activities.
He is fond of melodic and classic music, opera, and fiction cinema.
