I am a Computer Scientist with R&D experience in digital twins and immersive environments, currently working as a Research Manager at BT Research Labs (UK). My research interests include XR (mixed reality, augmented reality, virtual reality), artificial intelligence, and internet-of-things for creating digital twins, ambient intelligence, human-computer interfaces and cyber-physical systems. I’m also interested in remote collaborative work, technology-enhanced learning, innovation and the idea-generation process.
Additionally, I’m a Visiting Fellow at the Intelligent Connected Societies Group within the University of Essex (UK), the institution from where I hold a PhD in Computer Science and an MSc in Advanced Web Engineering. I completed a BEng in Information Technology at the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (Mexico).
I am an IEEE Senior Member, and Committee Member of the IEEE EdSoc’s Technical Committee on Immersive Learning Environments. I also serve as a Board Member of two non-profits: the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN) and the Creative Science Foundation (CSf).
I volunteer and organise different conferences, workshops, and journals, and I have more than 15 years of professional experience in the industry, working in collaboration with international multidisciplinary teams.
