About me

 
I am Researcher at University of Girona, Spain, for 2009-2013. I am currently Visiting Researcher of Computational Social Science Laboratory (CSSL), Denmark. I am Computer Science and System Engineer with a partial appointment in Cognitive Science.

I am doing a PhD in Technology at the Universitat de Girona. I received a MS in industrial and automatically computer from the Universitat de Girona in 2009. I have participated in Spanish projects as ADAPTAPlan, A2UN@, and other business-related and technology management. I am currently a researcher of the project ARreLS: Augmented Reality in Adaptive Learning Management Systems for All. I am doing an active research in technology-enhanced learning and related areas including adaptive hypermedia systems (AHS), user modelling, inclusive education, dyslexia, multimodal interactions, learner reflection, open learner models, learning analytics, recommender systems, and design and implementation of test scenarios. I have worked in the implementation of m-learning and e-learning collaborative tools and the design of learning objects both supported on ICT and standards. I have participated in several national and international conferences and she has published several articles in my research. I have tutored several career final projects.
