About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). Currently I am a member of the Laboratory of Human-Computer Interaction for Special Needs – EGOKITUZ, at the faculty of Computer Science, where I have been working since 2012 in several projects related with access to information technologies for people with vision and motor disabilities.

My PhD research is focused on studying web navigation behaviors within the wide and heterogeneous group of users with upper-body physical impairments, and analysing the appropriateness of up-to-date proposed adaptation techniques. The objective is to obtain an adaptive system for this group of users, capable of personalizing diverse aspects of web interfaces (its content, presentation and navigation), in order to improve their productivity and satisfaction when interacting with the Web.
Some of my topics of interest are:

  • Web Accessibility
  • Assistive Technologies
  • Dexterity and Visual Impairments
  • Interaction Analysis
  • Adaptation Techiques
  • Adaptative Systems
  • User Experience
As for my academic training, I hold a BSc Degree in Computer Science, and a Master in Embedded Systems Engineering from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). Since the beginning of 2014 I am working on my Ph.D. at EGOKITUZ, planning to complete my dissertation during the following 4 years. Since the beginning of 2014 I hold a research fellowship from the UPV/EHU for completing my Ph.D. dissertation during the following 4 years.
