My name is Alvaro Graves and I am a Computer and Cognitive scientist. I earned my BS, Engineering and MSc in Computer Science at Universidad de Chile in Santiago, Chile and my PhD in Cognitive Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. My main research areas are Semantic Web, Data visualizations and how humans can interact with data in general.

I have worked as a consultant for governments, NGOs and Fortune 100 companies as well as CTO of my own company, focused on semantic technologies, visualizations and applications of machine learning techniques.

Beyond that I enjoy playing different types of instruments (guitar, bass, keyboard). You can send me an email at MYNAME @ MYLASTNAME DOT CL. You cna also follow me on Twitter in @alvarograves
