About Me

Who am I

PhD in computer engineering, I am lecturer at the Engineering Faculty - University of Deusto, since 1998, and director of Deusto LearningLab group (http://learninglab.deusto.es/) since 2011. I obtained my PhD with the thesis “Integral Accessibility of Digital Resource Centres for People with Visual Disability”. My research interests focus on the innovative use of technology in STEAM* education, learning analytics and game-based learning. I teach subjects related to computer programming, human-computer interaction and information visualization. I participate in several European projects aiming at improving STEM education, developing computational thinking skills among primary and secondary school students, and raising their interest towards technology, especially among girls. I also participate and organize several dissemination and knowledge transference actions to reach the educational community and improve the STEAM education with the result of our work.

*STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths).
