I am pursuing a PhD in Interoperability for IoT and funded for the Infinitech project, working with semantic technologies for the financial sector under the supervision of Dr Martin Serrano.
I am qualified in Software and Electronic Engineering. Having enjoyed a total of ten years in industry, working in Animation, Mobile Apps, Network Management applications, and DevOps with wonderful people on various projects and technologies.
I most enjoyed the creative aspects and mentoring. Leading students through their Internships, I had only positive feedback and outcomes. I was advising in software, UX, soft skills, software tools, and methodologies.
I have a passion for education and wish to pursue a PhD to broaden my understanding and contribute to the field. In the longer term, I would love to pursue a career in education.
