My activities can be split in three: first concern my research activities, which have been focused towards design and implementation of distributed systems going from languages to cooperative work. Some of my main research projects include: the application of intelligent techniques to allocate request in a global information systems (like the WEB), and the study and implementation of cooperative systems, including virtual offices, generic platforms for 3D applications, and augmented virtual reality, today the resume of those projects are applied to GeDA-3D (Generic Distributed Architecture for 3 D applications) a platform useful to develop cooperative systems where a 3D interface can be useful. Finally in order to endow virtual creatures with autonomous human like behavior, since 6 years ago I started to do research in the area of cognitive architectures based on neuroscience evidence. Today, together with my team have some results of the progress of this cognitive architecture we called cuāyōllōtl (brain in nahuatl) in the motor system of virtual creatures. These activities have been mixed with teaching at master and PhD programs subjects related to Distributed Systems, cscw, coordination and planning aspects of complex distributed applications by means of agents and mobile agents.

Second part of my activities points towards the creation of work groups. From 1999 to 2009 I lead the research group in Computer Science at the CINVESTAV. From 1999 to 2002 I were president of computer chapter of IEEE in occident of Mexico. From 2000 to 2004 I organize the IEEE International Symposium on Advanced Distributed Systems in Guadalajara Mexico. In January 2001 I started the CDS (Centre of Software Development) at the CINVESTAV-GDL. Currently I lead two research groups. The first works on pervasive services, the second works on cognitive architectures. In the first are included researchers from ITESO, UAEM campus Toluca, UPSin, and ITAM, in the second researchers from UAEM campus Toluca, ITSON, UAG and UDG two campus.

Finally, the third part of my work is devoted to the industry in México. Some of this work includes the creation of a national lab on embedded systems for the car industry; the creation of a curricula for car embedded systems for CONTINENTAL. Also, the proposal and implementation of different software solutions for specific problems, for instance the creation of a knowledge base system for the Latin America Customs, A system for the government called “Mejora Regulatoria”, among different others. With Intel I have been working since 4 years ago proposing and creating material for help University lecturers to use Intel Architecture for embedded systems. Also participate in the organization of the first Mexico Copa Intel for embedded systems using the Atom architecture.
