Personal Information

Research Activities

I am a member of  ISISTAN Research Insitute at UNICEN, Tandil, Argentina since 1999.

I am a Research Assistant at CONICET, National Council of Scientific and Technological Research, since 2005

My principal interests are: intelligent agents, particularly interface agents; data mining and knowledge management; human-computer etiquette; personalized assistance; machine learning techniques for user profiling such as Case-Based Reasoning, Association Rules and Bayesian networks. I've worked in the development of two intelligent agents: NewsAgent, an intelligent agent that generates personalized newspapers according to users' interests and QueryGuesser, an intelligent agent that manages personalized queries to relational database systems. My PhD thesis proposes an approach to personalize the interaction between users and interface agents.
