- What made you choose to do a PhD?
Since I can remember, I always loved to study. I am the first person in my family to have a Bachelor’s degree. So, I think that always motivated me to become a PhD one day. Moreover, technology is constantly evolving, so to deeply understand and work with specific topics in its entire process and lifetime; time, focus, and a lot of research are needed.
- How did you hear about SDGine and Marie Curie’s actions and sponsorship?
I did my master’s degree at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid too, so I got a UPM email about a different topic that made it through the UPM webpage. Once there, I started looking around the webpage and found myself in the SDGine and MSCA PhD call for applications.
- Why have you chosen this particular field?
I would say that my career path brought me here. I have always been involved in research related to Data, but after my master’s degree, I started to work in positions more related to Innovation Data & Artificial Intelligence. Working with it made me realise how important it is for our present and future as human beings, and made me passionate about the topic. So, I started to look for Data & AI PhD opportunities and found this project on the UPM webpage, with a topic focused on Artificial Intelligence, and where I could also positively impact people’s life.
- What difficulties do you expect to encounter during this project?
There are some difficulties, mainly related to bureaucracy, and communication among all the people involved in the action. From a technical perspective, the improvement of my Artificial Intelligence skills, and the psychology inputs that we need to take into account during this project, for a better and safer content recommendation. For this last one, we are planning to collaborate with specialists in the field during the Doctorate Secondment at institutions with expertise in the field.
- What do you plan to do after you complete your PhD?
I want to continue working with Data & Artificial Intelligence projects and companies that positively impact people’s lives.
