I am a member of the faculty of the Computer Science Department of Carlos III University of Madrid, since February 2006. I obtained a degree in Computer Science from Carlos III University of Madrid in 1999, and my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) in 2004.

I have been also a member of the Spanish Centre of Caption and Audiodescription (CESyA) since 2005 to 2013, as the person in charge of the captioning and audiodescription database and also as the main researcher in the "accessibility in education" line.

I conducted two postdoctoral research stays at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh - PA- USA) during 7 months in 2005, and University of Southampton (Southampton - UK).

I have been working in several National research projects on Accessibility, Advanced Database Technologies, Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval. My research interests include Accessibility, Adaptive Intelligent Educational Systems, Information Retrieval, Database Design and Advanced Database Technologies, among others.

Research Lines:

MULTIMEDICA: Multilingual Information Extraction in Health domain and application to scientific and informative documents

Reference:TIN2010-20644-C03-01
Summary: The aim of this project is to define and develop information extraction and retrieval techniques based on texts from the medical domain. This will be carried out following two basic tasks: firstly, processing scientific documents in English about pharmacology, and secondly, processing informative texts about health topics in other languages such as Spanish and Arabic. These information extraction techniques include domain entities recognition, pattern recognition, machine learning for extracting semantic relations, and the integration of lexical resources which are specific within the public health system (UMLS, SNOMED and so on) in order to improve applications. On the other hand, the information extracted from the processing task must be used to enrich the information retrieval tools. Thus, three prototypes of searching information will be created in order to show the feasibility of the proposed techniques. The first of them is an application oriented to pharmacists to extract knowledge about drug-drug interactions from scientific publications. The second prototype will be a tool focused on general public or patients to search information about illnesses and medicines. The third one will use the terminology extracted from the Spanish-Arabic parallel corpus to aid terminology teaching in the biomedical domain.

GEMMA: Multiplatform manager for Audiovisual Advertisement Media

 

Reference:Proyecto AVANZA - TSI-020302-2010-14
Summary: The main aim of GEMMA Project (acronym of the Spanish translation of "Multiplatform manager for Audiovisual Advertisement Media") is to propose a new model for managing audiovisual advertisement contents over platforms of different nature. These audiovisual contents will be distributed lately to multiplatform devices. Furthermore, accessibility issues will be taking into account from the very beginning of the system (from the design of the audiovisual contents to their publication).

SAGAS. Advanced System of Automatic Generation of Subtitles

 

Reference:Proyecto Avanza - TSI-020100-2010-184
Summary: The main goal of the project is the design and development of a system, which implements a process of automatic generation of subtitles for prerecorded video or audio accompanied by an accurate transcription (screenplay). In this project wants develop a prototype. It will be a tool that will offer support for subtitling of audiovisual content in recorded (movies, documentaries, series, etc
…) for different media way such as television, Internet and mobile devices. In this context, the process is called recorded subtitling (off-line or canned) because is not processed in real time; it is treated previously without anytime limits. This automatic support provide a synchronization process of the screenplay with audio by adding time stamps, analyze of errors resulted in the process, and the text subtitles segmentation conform to current standards.

APEINTA: Aiming for Inclusive Learning. Using new technologies IN and OUT of the classroom

 

Reference:EA2008-0312
Summary: APEINTA is an educational project that aims for inclusive education for every student of all abilities in and out of the classroom. We propose to use new computer science and electronic technologies in order to avoid learning barriers that we can unfortunately find already in the educational environment. The APEINTA project is focused in two main inclusive proposals: One Inside the classroom and the other one Outside the classroom. 1.The Inside the classroom proposal is to use two mechanisms in order to eliminate students’ communication barriers. First, the use of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) provides automatic real-time transcription. And second, a text to speech system (TTS) makes easier the communication with the teacher and other students for people with speech problems. 2.The Outside the classroom proposal provides an accessible Web learning platform with digital resources, so every student can access them in and out of the classroom. The project and its evaluation have being carried out at the Carlos III University of Madrid, in 3rd course of Computer Science degree. Good results and a high satisfaction level have been obtained. Moreover, new research and work lines have born from this project. Computer Science Department and Telecommunication department at Universidad Carlos III of Madrid and the Spanish Center of Captioning and Audiodescription (CESyA) are collaborating in the APEINTA Project. This project received in 2009 the FIAPAS (Spanish Confederation of Parents and Friends of Deaf People) award for research and innovation in education area related to hearing disability.

SOPAT: Servicio de Orientación Personalizada y Accesible para Turismo.

 

Reference:CIT-410000-2007-12
Summary: This project is related to the strategic action line of
‘Tourism related technologies’ with the aim of improving the existing signaling systems for tourists (of any language) and develop accessible systems in tourist accommodation to help overcome some disabilities (motor, audible, and visual). The consortium created for this project joins together experienced companies in the IT (TMT Factory, Signaletics) and academic research groups (La Salle, UPM, UC3M). SOPAT aims to characterize, develop and validate a new universal signaling system based on the complementary use of: (1) radio-electrical positioning signals emitted by the user (willingly or automatically by some device); and (2) keep natural interactions with the user in order to provide customized services and information. At the technological level, two configurations are raised based on respective communication channels, such as (a) a portable device (PDA), and (b) a fixed-position interface (SmartPoint). The applied positioning technology is the identification by radio frequency (RFID and ZigBee). The interaction subsystem counts on advanced UI elements (recognition and synthesis of speech, and natural language processing) and Natural Interaction models. Our group is involved in this project to provide Natural Interaction mechanisms, supported by a multi-agent platform (Ecosystem) and knowledge models cooperating on it. Among others, in this project can be highlighted the Situation Model (aimed to the management of the circumstances, and supported by spatio-temporal DB) and the Dialogue Model (for controlling and endow coherence to interaction; based on the Threads Model).

IntegraTV-4ALL: an interactive television for all

 

Reference:FIT-350301-2004-2
Summary: IntegraTV-4all is an effort towards a new television for all and to promote the access of people with disabilities to the new technologies, with a development adapted and oriented to their possibilities and necessities, which includes both graphical and natural-language interfaces. The consortium is formed by industrial and academic partners(TMT Factory, Ramón Llull University, Technical University of Madrid and Carlos III University). IntegraTV-4all wants to extend interactive television in new directions through the development and integration into the IntegraTV of a new module that contributes to facilitate the personal autonomy and the social integration of groups such as, primarily, people with some sensorial impairment (blindness, visual deficiencies, deafness, impaired hearing ability, limitations of speech). Potentially, nevertheless, the results of the project are also useful for people with some physical or psychic impairment as well as for the elderly. Initially in the project, a basic service of interactive television was implemented, which lets users navigate through the menus using their voice. This service is in operation as a prototype so that users are able to take advantage of all the services of IntegraTV-4all and to navigate through the system without the need of visual references, given that all the options on the screen and all the texts are presented by voice. In a later phase, adapted content (created for users with disabilities) and conversational capabilities (within a limited domain) are added to the system.
