Ph.D. in Computer Science and Technology

  • University: Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
  • Years: 2012-2015 Expected
  • Description:

    The main aim of the Ph.D. is to improve the Chat's interaction and accessibility for people with disabilities, people without experience and elderly people. Different studies were conducted in order to obtain the main problems that people face when they use these chats. Basing on these problems and on the standards and guidelines which are related to m-learning environments, solutions to the problems that people face were given. Moreover, a new way of interaction with chats was tested with real users to assure if it could be useful for them in real life or not. Currently, the data analysis of the collected data is being carried out. The Ph.D. is in an advanced situation and it is spected to be finished in 2015. Moreover, it is important to remark that the main contribution of the Ph.D. has been awarded with the Accésit Jesús Lorés Award by the Spanish AIPO organization.

Master in Computer Science and Technology

  • University: Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
  • Years: 2009-2010
  • Description:

    This master aims to provide skills related to computers science and technology. More concretely, my specialization area was Software Engineering. Moreover, the Master's dissertation evaluated the accessibility of Moodle from the point of view of people with visual impairments. To achieve it, an automatic, semiautomatic and manual evaluation of the tool was carried out from the point of view of the W3C guidelines ATAG 2.0 and WCAG 2.0. In addition, the tool was evaluated switching of the screen and using the screen readers NVDA and JAWS to simulate that a person with visual impairments uses the tool. The results of this research were published in the WEBIST 2011 conference which was selected as one of the best papers and was published later in the "Web Information Systems and Technologies" and in the "Higher Education Institutions and Learning Management Systems: Adoption and Standardization" books. Finally, the complete research was published in the "Universal Access in the Information Society" JCR impacted journal.
