César Alejandro García García

Brief Biography

César holds a BSc in Computer Science from Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Campus Guadalajara and a MSc in Information Technologies from CUCEA, Universidad de Guadalajara. His MSc degree was obtained with the thesis “Use of Information Technologies in Assisted Living Environments”, describing different projects aiming to incorporate IT into smart homes designed for the elderly and people with special needs. He joined the PhD program under the direction of Dr. Victor Larios with the research topic of behavior modeling for virtual reality environments, working with the DVRMedia2 Framework.
