About me

This is me, Idafen Santana Pérez,  developer, lecturer and researcher. I am currently working at DSC department, at ULPGC on sensor data for light pollution and medical image processing.  Formerly research fellow at the Ontology Engineering Group, where I worked on topics related to Open Science and Linked Data in general.

As for my academic record, I received the MSc degree in Complex Software Systems in 2010 and the PhD degree in Artificial Intelligence in 2016, both at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. From 2011 to 2015 I held a FPU scholarship, at the Artificial Intelligence Department of the Computer Science (2012). I also hold a degree in Computer Science from Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (2008) awarded for the second best academic record.  During 2014 I did a research stay at the Information Science Institute,  University of Southern California.

My publication record can be accessed here, and the document of my PhD thesis can be accessed at UPM’s Open Archive along with the slides from the presentation, which are in slideshare.

I have also produced some logos in my free time. An small list of them can be found in my portfolio.
