About


Welcome!

a picture of me

I am a full professor at the Telematics Department of the University of Cauca and an IEEE Senior Member. I am also a member of the Telematics Engineering Group. I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Institute of Informatics of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil, 2015. Furthermore, I hold a Master in Telematics and a Bachelor in Telecommunications from the University of Cauca in 2006 and 2001, respectively. My full, official Curriculum Vitae maintained by Colciencias (in Spanish) can be found here.
