I'm a member of the Knowledge Based Systems Group since September 2006.

Since January 2012 I am the principal investigator in the Project Recursive Queries over Semantically Enriched Data Repositories (Hertha-Firnberg Program T515, FWF).


My main research interest is logics for Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, with focus on Description Logics.


Most of them are in DBLP, or see a pdf list.

Here you can find my PhD thesis.


We have open PhD positions in our new doctoral program.

We are searching for the best thesis for the VCLA International Student Awards.

There is support for excellent master students interested in contributing to this project.

I received the EMCL Distinguished Alumni Award 2014 for outstanding contributions to the field of Computational Logic.
Here is a picture from the Award Ceremony on July 21, 2014.

Here you can see some photos from the LogicLounge on Female Logics.
You can also find my picture (15) on this edition of profil.

About Me

Apart from my research, I am working on two other full-time, long term projects
(the reason, in fact, for my leave in 2011 and 2013).

You can find my CV here.

I grew up in Puebla, Mexico.
Before my PhD, I studied the European Masters in Computational Logic.
