Biografía

Nací en Santiago, viví en Antofagasta y luego en Valdivia, donde realicé mi educación media y mis estudios en la UACh. Me titulé de Ingeniero Civil en Informática el año 2004 y he trabajado en la UACh, tanto en proyectos de investigación, de transferencia tecnológica, y como profesor. Realicé mis estudios de doctorado en la Universidad de Pittsburgh, entre los años 2011 y 2017 bajo la tutela del Dr. Peter Brusilovsky y obtuve el grado de doctor en 2017 con mi tesis titulada «Open Learner Models for Self-Regulated Learning: Exploring the Effects of Social Comparison and Granularity». Mi investigación siempre ha estado relacionada con tecnologías de aprendizaje. Durante mi doctorado trabajé con modelos abiertos de aprendiz (open learner models) e implementé visualizaciones que incluyen elementos de comparación social y evalué su influencia en el uso de herramientas en línea para aprender a programar. En el Instituto y en la Escuela de Informática aporto con investigación y trabajo en el área de analíticas de aprendizaje, visualización de la información, minería de datos y educación en ingeniería. Como parte del consejo de escuela, y como profesor e integrante del claustro de Magister de Informática, donde también colaboro y dirijo cursos de postgrado.

I was born in Santiago and lived in Antofagasta and Valdivia (Chile). In Valdivia I completed my high school and my university studies.  I graduated (profesional title) as a Informatics Engineer in 2014 and since then I have worked at Universidad Austral de Chile (UACH) performing research and deployment work and teaching. Between 2011 and 2017 I studied under the advise of Peter Brusilovsky at the School of Computing and Information at University of Pittsburgh, and got my Ph.D. degree in 2017 with the thesis «Open Learner Models for Self-Regulated Learning: Exploring the Effects of Social Comparison and Granularity». My research has been always focused in technology in education. During my Ph.D. studies I worked with open learner models and developed, deployed and evaluated visualizations that incorporates social comparison features. As part of the Informatics Institute and School at UACh, I research in topics related to learning analytics, information visualization, data mining and engineering education. I am also part of the Informatics School Counsel at UACh and the (recently crated) Informatics Master program at UACh, where I teach and direct master students’ theses.
