Miguel Ángel Fernández Gutiérrez

Consulting Engineer at Cisco


I consider myself to be an open, motivated and compromised person but, above all, a problem solver. I enjoy working with people from any area of expertise to come up with solutions to challenging problems, thus helping make a positive impact in any way I possibly can. As part of this mindset, I find myself continuously engaged with other colleagues in creating and participating in new, diverse projects, ranging from crisis response and education to graphic design and media.

I am really excited about learning new technologies and skills, especially in the areas of computer science and mathematics. Some of the topics that interest me the most are artificial intelligence and machine learning, business intelligence and item analytics. Apart from that, I am also really interested in sysadmin and networking technologies, especially in network automation and cybersecurity.
