I am leading speech synthesis (text-to-speech) developments and research in AppTek.
I have worked for different research projects related with Natural Language Processing (NLP):
Educational eXplanations and Practices in Emergency Remote Teaching (EXPERT). Erasmus+ KA2 research project supported by the Erasmus+ Education program under grant agreement no.20-226-093604-SCH.
Multilingual subtitling of classrooms and plenary sessions. Research project supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science under ref. no. RTI2018-094879-B-I00 (MCIU/AEI/FEDER, EU)
X5gon is an EU H2020 project which aims to create a solution that will help users/students find what they need not just in OER repositories, but across all open educational resources on the web.
More (Multilingual Online Resources for Education) is a MINECO founded project which aims to dramatically foster Open Education by providing multilingual access to OER and by enabling multilingual online communication in MOOC platforms.
The European Multiple MOOC Aggregator is a 30-month pilot action supported by the European Union. It aims to showcase excellence in innovative teaching methodologies and learning approaches through the large-scale piloting of MOOCs on different subjects.
transLectures was an EU-funded project to develop innovative, cost-effective tools for the automatic transcription and translation of online educational videos.
The Harvest project La Vie developed a proof-of-concept recommendation system to provide users of VideoLectures.NET with advice on suitable videos for their needs.
My interest on designing web pages and applications began at the age of 14, where I created some of my first personal websites using Adobe Dreamweaver. Since 2015 I also work as a freelance full-stack web developer. Here is some of my work:
I completed my PhD thesis at Universitat Politècnica de València on improving neural speech synthesis technologies for cascaded speech-to-speech translation in the context of automatic dubbing. It is entitled Deep Neural Networks for Automatic Speech-To-Speech Translation of Open Educational Resources.
I studied a master's degree on artificial intelligence where I learnt the basics about many different topics related to artificial intelligence, machine learning and pattern recognition (probability theory, neural networks, deep learning, support vector machines, Hidden Markov Models...)
I studied Computer Science Engineering at Universitat Politècnica de València, where I chose the specialization on Artificial Intelligence for the 5th year.
