I am associate professor in the computer science faculty of the technical university of Madrid. I belong to the operating system teaching unit. I currently teach real time operating systems in the following subjects:
DAW, STR, DSCD, SI, TFC SO4, II, (sorry, only in Spanish)


I am interested in Collective Intelligence in general and Citizen Science applied to Astronomy in particular. My team and I work in the development of software and hardware for the collaborative generation of free knowledge. With this goal in mind I created Ciclope group in 1995. All our work and results are copyleft and are available in our website in our repository and in the GLORIA repository.
Some of the researching fields we are currently working involve educational web labs (e-education) and citizen science (e-science) applied mainly to Astronomy.
In 2008 my group made Montegancedo Observatory, the first free access astronomical observatory of the world.
I am currently coordinator of GLORIA FP7 european project, and co-PI of MEGARA and ASTROMADRID projects.
As part of the e-science activities I am also interested in P2P broadcasting through the Internet. We use the broadcasting of astronomical events as a workbench, since we get thousands of people connected simultaneously to our video stream. We've been doing the broadcasting through the Internet of the three last total solar eclipses, among other astronomical events. If you want to watch the next one, please go to our site sky-live.tv.
If you want to know more about me, please, don't hesitate to contact me. You can also read my CV in english or in spanish.
Or if you prefer, just can track my work by following Ciclope's pages in:
