I belong to the Informatics Technology-Artificial Intelligence Group (GTI-IA). These are research interests and the projects I am working in.
Current Funded Projects
From the whole set of the GTI-IA active projects, I'm working in the following ones.
- HUMBACE: Human and Social Behaviour Models for Agent-Based Computational Economics
- Intelligent System for the Sustainable Management of Urban Fleets
In the publications section you can find some references to papers related to these projects and other previos projects in which I have participated as researcher.
And so the game went on. Our friend was absolutely correct: nobody from the group needed more than five links in the chain to reach, just by using the method of acquaintance, any inhabitant of our Planet

Currently I have completed a master in Physics of Complex Systems and I am finishing my PhD in this new area. I am focused on complex networks and chaotic systems and this is what i apply to the social network analysis. It is particularly interesting when both, humans and artificial entities (agents) share the same environment and interact each other. In that way, agents benefit from the knowledge of the people and people take advantage of the calculus capacity and analysis of the intelligent agents.
The topic of my PhD Thesis was temporal knowledge represetnation and reasoning. The general idea was (i) to propose a temporal model to specify the beliefs of a intelligent agent, and (ii) to create predictable methods to apply temporal reasoning in a strict real-time environment. The dissertation is titled Real-time Imagination.
