Since October 2010, I am a "Visiting Scholar" at the Berkeley Initiative in Soft Computing (BISC) at the University of California, Berkeley. My main research focus is in Computing with Words, Actions and Perceptions (CW-AP), area in which I am currently developing the project "Smart-Bees: Learning Language in Semi-Supervised Environments".
I graduated with honors with a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science in 2000, gained the Master's degree in 2002 and the PhD�s degree (Artificial Intelligence) in 2007, from the Technical University of Madrid. I obtained a Research grant for 6 moths from the Technical University of Madrid and the European Union, and a 4 years PhD. Fellowship from the Education Department of Spain.
During 2003-2004, I spent one year at the University of California, Berkeley, where he wrote a part of his PhD. thesis, and collaborated with Prof. Lotfi Zadeh. After that I was a Graduate Student Instructor at the Rey Juan Carlos University (2004-2005) and at the Technical University of Madrid (2005-2006), and a Lecturer (2006-2007) in the European Master in Computational Logic at Technical University of Madrid.
I have published 8 papers in international journals, 7 book chapters and more than 20 papers in peer-review conferences. I has participated in the organization of several international conferences and seminars, I have organized special sessions, and participated in several research projects, funded by European Union, Spanish Government, Madrid Regional Government and Castilla la Mancha Regional Government.
In recognition for my work, I have received: the "Best Doctoral Dissertation Award" in Computer Science by the Technical University of Madrid, and the "Juan de la Cierva" Grant, as one the top 10 most promising young researchers in Computer Science by the Spanish Department of Science and Innovation.
