 Brief description of your activity focus
Management and development of technology innovation research, as well as innovation research on socio-economic sciences and humanities

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
In recent years have worked for a technology observatory (OTecH) doing technology surveillance and competitive
intelligence studies aimed at boosting inclusiveness of ICT-enabled research and innovation in Mexico, I have
developed big data analysis and activities oriented to knowledge transfer and dissemination of prospective
studies regarding nanotechnologies, biotechnology, information and communications technology, advanced
materials, and advanced manufacturing.

On the other hand, I am currently doing research as part of my Doctorate (PhD) in Digital Humanities focusing on
education and ICT, especially on topics regarding e-learning, new learning theories such as connectivism, the new
skills set, digital divide, inequalities in education, new technologies for digital libraries, virtual museums, social
platforms, and applications of ICT in expressive arts – visual arts. I have participated as part of the staff that
coordinates The International Festival of Image (FINI), where hundreds of photographs, films, illustrations, and
alternative work from around the world are selected and awarded each year.

I have also worked in the public sector as a project leader dealing with issues related to the transformation of
public administrations to become open and collaborative, e-government. I have been part of the board that is in
charge of the National Research and Education Network (CUDI) which is a broad band tele-communications
network, an e-infrastructure that interconnects research centers, universities, businesses and government
agents, I started and initiative for international cooperation between Mexico and Spain (CUDI-RedIRIS), an
agreement for science and technology transfer.

I have worked as a consultant for the development of a smart city transportation system in Valencia, Spain,
which was intended to be secure and clean with efficient energy consumption. I have also advised a Digital
Marketing Agency for SMEs in which we developed user-driven innovation solutions under a demand driven
collaborative model, where we applied design thinking tools in SMEs, along with a lean startup methodology.
