  • About

    Hello! And thank you for visiting ~


    I am a researcher and scientific web developer in the Max Plank Institute for Intelligent Interaction Technologies, Germany.


    I was born in Costa Rica, and currently I live in Germany. In 2008 I was awarded with the Japanese Monbukagakusho Scholarship. Thanks to this I did my graduate studies in the University of Tsukuba. The topic of my masters was Shape Representation in the Cerebral Cortex. Following, I underwent my doctoral studies in Affective Computing and Human Computer Interaction.
