I am a Full Professor of Artificial Intelligence and coordinator of the Intelligent Systems Group (GSI), recognized as a competitive reference group by the Xunta de Galicia since 2006. My research lines are focused on different areas of artificial intelligence and its applications, such as natural language generation (Data-To-Text systems), soft computing, machine learning and approximate knowledge representation and reasoning. I am co-author of almost 200 scientific papers on these subjects and I have participated in more than 40 R&D projects and contracts for innovation and transfer of technology, being a principal researcher in 18 of them. I have also participated in scientific dissemination projects and I am a member of several thematic research networks. I have been Deputy Director of the School of Engineering of the USC (ETSE). I am currently a Board Member of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA) and member of the Organizing Committee of the "24th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI)," which took place in Santiago de Compostela and on-line, 29 August-8 September 2020.
