- Participation in panel on "The Internet of Health Things: applications, benefits, and challenges" at the CPDP International Conference on Data Protection and Artificial Intelligence in Brussels.
- Paper "A review on video-based active and assisted living technologies for automated lifelogging" published in Expert Systems with Applications journal.
- Participation in round table on "Research on Digital Accessibility at the University of Alicante" at the Workshop on Entrepreneurship and Research in Digital Accessibility
- Chair of the 3rd IET International Conference on Technologies for Active and Assisted Living (TechAAL 2019)
- I have been nominated as a member of the Specialized Strategic Committee for Innovation in Sustainable Habitat by the Valencian Agency of Innovation
I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Technology, University of Alicante (Spain) where I belong to the Domotics and Ambient Intelligence (DAI) research group and the University Institute for Computer Research (IUII).
Between 2011 and 2016, I had several positions (Marie Curie fellow, and Senior Researcher) at the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing, Kingston University, where I led the Theme on Technologies for Active and Assisted Living in the Interdisciplinary Hub for the Study of Health and Age-related conditions (IhSHA). I was also a member of the Digital Information Research Centre.
My main research work is focused on ambient assisted living: person-environment interaction, computer vision, and support to the activities of daily living of elderly and/or disabled people. This is the area of application of my whole research background: computational intelligence (neural networks, evolutionary computation), computer vision, home automation, and assistive technologies.
I am currently the coordinator of PAAL - Privacy-Aware and Acceptable Lifelogging services for older and frail people, funded under the framework of the transnational Joint Programming Initiative "More Years, Better Lives".
