I joined LIFIA by the end of 1999 as an undergraduate student of Computer Science. Eversince that moment I have carried out research and teaching tasks. I obtained my degree as a Licentiate in Computer Science at UNLP in 2005. I am currently doing my PhD, jointly supervided by Argentina (Computer Science College – UNLP) and Spain (Department of Computer Science - UPV).
My main research interest is working with pure object-oriented environments, such as Smalltalk. Within this area, I am particularly interested in the work with meta-programming, persistence, distribution and the development of context-aware applications. When I entered the laboratory, I started to work on a framework documentation project, for which I developed a small UML class diagram editor. Once the project was over, I started to work on application customization by using
meta-programming and well-known object-oriented techniques. After that project I focused on porting Performer (an Open GL framework developed by Silicon Graphics) to Smalltalk. By the middle of the 2004 I started the development of an architecture and a framework for context-aware
applications, which was the topic of my licentiate thesis. I am currently expanding that project and working on the development of an integration platform for environmental intelligence.
