Hi! My Name is Jose M Chenlo

A Little About Me

I'm always willing to learn new things. I'm highly interested in technologies that can improve the way in which people interact with the world.

I have a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Santiago de Compostela. The topic of my research is the detection and classification of opinionated content in the Web. My research interests lie in Information Retrieval, Machine Learning, Opinion and Text Mining, Automatic Text Classification, and Computational Linguistics.

I've been involved in several technology transfer projects between the University and private companies. Within these projects, I could apply my research skills to real-world problems.

My ambitions

I would like to continue with my career as a data scientist and a web technology expert. Within IT companies, there are many opportunities; but I'm interested in joining a company with a compromise with innovation. A company willing to use my expertise in Machine Learning, Big Data and Web Technologies to create disruptive products and services. I would like to help to expand the horizons of the company (contributing to practical, innovation and research aspects).
