I’ve received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of the Basque Country (Spain) and my bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering (with honors) from EAFIT University (Colombia).
In 1998 I was student researcher in the LSFA (Large Scale Flexible Automation Lab) of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA).
My bachelor dissertation was selected between the candidates for the national excellence prize finalizing as one of the runner-ups.
I was a lecturer at EAFIT University in CAD/CAM Systems and Conceptual Design between 2003 and 2004.
In 2004 I moved to Spain to pursue a doctorate and started working for Vicomtech leading different projects. I´ve been working within the ITS and engineering division, where my main tasks are the application of AI and Semantic Technologies in Virtual Engineering, and the mixing of computer graphics (mostly CAD and virtual and augmented reality) to different industrial scenarios.
During the last two years, I´ve been also collaborating with the eHealth area in the application of artificial intelligence and knowledge engineering to diagnosis systems (CDSS) and the gathering of medical knowledge for re-use.
I have several scientific international publicationsin areas such as ontology support to design review and virtual reality walkthroughs; STEP based automatic categorization of 3D CAD elements, concurrent engineering, etc.
In 2007 I was invited researcher at the University of Newcastle (NSW-Australia) returning In 2011 with a Marie Curie research visitor grant expending again 2 months at the university of Newcastle's KERT group.
I am a member of KES international where I contribute as reviewer and member of the editorial committee.
I am also a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the International Association of ontologies and their application (IAOA).
