His research interests are applying computer, telematics and distributed systems technologies to individual, group and community communication, collaboration and participation.
Distributed applications on top of the Internet provide most important services for groups and communities, however they present many research issues which motivated my PhD thesis, and continue to be part of research proyects I am involved.
Once several distributed applications have been comercialized, it has been realized that there was an urgent demand for resource management systems. Grids are such enviroments design for computationally intensive applications, but many other systems have to be created yet.
I am interested in researching new applications of distributed systems technology. This is a difficult area of research which requires working closely with practitioners of other areas such as pedagogist, antropologist, ..... but it is motivative.
His earlier affiliations include a summer research stay at Information Science Institute / University of Southern California, a year working at Internet Technologies dept. in Bull UK & Ireland, a year as research assistant at Technology Centers of Navarra.
He holds a Telecomunication MEng. from the Public University of Navarra.
