I am a Ph.D. candidate in Hispanic Studies with a specialization in the Digital Humanities at Western University. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Master’s degree in Logic and Artificial Intelligence, both from the University of Seville. My main research interests lie in gastronomic culture, knowledge creation and representation, online communities, social media, and machine learning.
As a member of the Cultureplex Lab, I work as a programmer and data analyst. I have carried out a variety of projects involving activities such as web programming and natural language processing, among others. I am recently focusing on data analysis (including data mining and visualization), and sentiment analysis. In my last project, I analyzed millions of sentences extracted from different media in order to analyze the sentiment associated to entrepreneurship and new technological startups, and compare it to established big companies.
I speak Spanish and English, and I like to travel and show the results of my work at international conferences around the world.
