About me

I got a Master in Artificial Intelligence, Pattern Recognition and Digital Images at the Univesitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain) in 2009. I started my PhD. that same year, in the area of Human-Computer interaction, working at the Departamento de Sistemas Informáticos y Computación (DSIC) together with Emilio Camahort and Francisco Abad.
The focus of my research is on the study of multimodal 3D User Interfaces, specifically, studying multimodal interfaces for Augmented Reality and Omnidirectional video applications.

I'm currently working as a researcher at the Expertise Centre for Digital Media (EDM), a research institute of Hasselt University.
