Associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oviedo
In 2000 I started teaching in the University of Oviedo where I got my PhD in 2005. My main area of interest is Web IR but I'm now focused on social media research. I have published in venues such as Communications of the ACM, IEEE Internet Computing, or IEEE Multimedia. I acted as guest co-editor for a special issue of Internet Research on the predictive power of social media, I contributed a chapter on Political Opinion to "Twitter: A Digital Socioscope", and I've coauthored the forthcoming book "Retooling Politics: How Digital Media Are Shaping Democracy", published by CUP.
I print this not because I am proud of my own picture, 
but because most people like to see the person with whom they are doing business.
