ResarchGate profile

I am a PhD candidate in the Information Science School at University of Pittsburgh under the advising of Peter Brusilovsky. I am proudly part of the PAWS lab. I am also an adjunct instructor and researcher in the Informatic Institute at Universidad Austral de Chile (www.inf.uach.cl). My areas of research involve educational technologies, adaptive educational systems, educational data mining, visualization and learning analytics.
