I work daily, balancing the preparation of my teaching in the degrees of Computer Engineering and Telematic Engineering in Telecommunications, with the completion of tasks in research projects (if any) or personal projects related to my research interests.
- WHY is your work important?
My work allows me to live my vocation, learn continuously, and contribute to society by putting my small contribution towards the development of our society. It provides me with autonomy, enjoyment of interacting with other people, and personal satisfaction when seeing the progress of my students.
