Francisco A. Gómez J.


I'm PhD in Computer Sciences, working in computational modeling of biological systems (COMBIOS). Specifically,  brain imaging and computational ecology. I'm Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Deparment at Universidad Nacional de Colombia.


During my undergraduate studies, I worked as research assistant in OHWAHA, a former research group in computer graphics and image processing in Colombia, in head of Dr. Manuel Guillermo Forero. Later, I was involved in many different projects: e-learning systems, computer games, optimization tools for intelligent transportation systems and computer vision tools for people monitoring, optical character recognition and fingerprint recognition. I finished my PhD (Summa Cum Laude) in the National University of Colombia at CIM@LAB (former Bioingenium) lab under supervision of Prof. Eduardo Romero. I worked as postdoctoral researcher in the COMA Science Group at the Cyclotron Research center (Liege-Belgium)  under supervision of Prof. Steven Laureys. I was associate professor in the computer science department in Universidad Central de Colombia.

My current research interests include:

  • Brain resting activity.
  • Computational Ecology.
  • Predictive Policing.
