After Lotta and Eduardo last year, I am happy to have Lara Quijano-Sanchez as a visiting researcher this summer. Lara is a PhD student at the Departamento de Ingeniería del Software e Inteligencia Artificial, Facultad de Informática, Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Until the end of August, Lara will be working with us on her phd topic.
Lara is researching on such topics as recommender systems, social networks, social factors, decision support systems, and applied intelligent systems. Her research is focused on the analysis and use of group recommender systems where she has developed several algorithms to reflect accurately argumentations between users in decision-making processes. Currently she is also working in the design of explanations that could help users better understand the recommendations proposed to them — topics we are researching in my research group as well.
