Short bio

I am a professor of computer science at CICESE, Mexico, where I lead the Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing Healthcare Laboratory. My research interests include Ubiquitous Computing, Human-Computer Interaction and Medical Informatics. My research has focused on the design and evaluation of ambient computing environments for healthcare. In collaboration with public and private Mexican hospitals our research team has conducted fieldwork studies to gain a better understanding of current work practices and design and evaluate appropriate pervasive computing technology for such complex environments.  I hold a BSc from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico (UNAM) and MSc and PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I am founding member and former president of the Mexican Computer Science Society (SMCC).
