Software developer, researcher & human


About me

First of all, thank you and welcome to my personal site

I am BSc in Computer Engineering and MSc in Development and Integration of Software Solutions. I am also a PhD who is currently working as Research Associate at Morelab Research Group focusing on Mobile Services, Interaction Models and User Experience. My background is in the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), where my research interests are several. Prior to that role, I have started working as developer in IDE - Grupo Informática de Euskadi maintaining a software infraestructure related to the software architecture department. In 2009, I received the “Best End-term project award; Faculty of Engineering of the University of Deusto”, which was the main trigger of my research career. Apart from creating and realizing new ideas related to new technologies, my hobbies include surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding and traveling among others.

Main interests


Mobile apps development

I like depeloping Android apps since 2010. I think mobile devices are our key interface to interact with the digital wold.

Interaction

Making something simple is harder than making it complex. I try to be simple through usability and interaction techniques.

Science & Research

Since 2008 I have ve been learning several technologies to focus my research on mobile applications.

Indie games development

I also enjoy studying how games are made. As a result I have developed a basic 2d engine based on OpenGL. I am also learning the Unity platform.

PhD dissertation

Metodología basada en la experiencia para la mejora de la eficiencia de la evaluación de la usabilidad de aplicaciones móviles

Directed by Ana B. Lago

On November 10th, 2015, I have been honored with the PhD recognition. I have studied whether it is possible to reduce the needed resources to assess the usability of mobile applications without decreasing the quality of results through a new methodology focused on a knowledge base. In order to do so, a new methodology to evaluate the usability of mobile applications was developed, a software platform to support the new methodology and achieve practical applicability was implemented, and results of the use of the new methodology were verified.
