Who am I?

I work as a research professor at the School of Telematics at the University of Colima in Mexico. My research interest focus in Human-Computer Interaction, ICT for elderly people, Serious Games, Learning Technology, Ambient Intelligence and Software Engineering. In 2012 I was awarded with an IBM Faculty Award (Students for a Smarter Planet) to support my research in intelligent environments for education.

I'm currently serving in the board of the Mexican Association on Human Computer Interaction (AMexIHC). I am Senior Member of the IEEE, and I am a professional member of the ACM and serve as Officer of the Mexican ACM SIGCHI Chapter (CHI-Mexico). I am member of the Mexican Academy of Computing (AMexComp) and the Mexican Society of Computer Science (SMCC). Additionally, I serve on the editorial board of the JMIR Human Factors and I served as Co-General Chair of the Sixth Mexican Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (MexIHC 2016), IX Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction (CLIHC 2019) and Chair of the ACM SIGCHI Latin American Community (LAIHC).

I am currently pursuing a PhD in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) at University of Vigo focusing on technology adoption by elderly people, contributing to home care systems through interactive television and Internet of Things. I received a M.Eng. degree (with honors -Mérito Escolar-) in Computer Science at Universidad Autónoma de Baja California (UABC) and a Bachelor degree in Telematics engineering from the University of Colima.
