I am a third year PhD candidate in the Digital Humanities Center for Japanese Arts and Cultures at Ritsumeikan University, Japan. Prior to this, I graduated from LANIA, Mexico with a M.Sc. in Computer Science. I also participated in the Internship Japan-Mexico program at Ritsumeikan University, organized by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
I am working on Information Visualization and Visual Analytics under the supervision of Dr. Ruck Thawonmas. My research includes the use of recommendation systems to support visual exploration of visualized data. In particular, I have been working on the stacked graph visualization, where the visual search space is characterized and compare with user profiles to produce recommendations. With the exponential grow of information in environments like the Internet, we believe our techniques are very useful for making sense on large volumes of data.
