Happy students


A brief about my teaching activies.

Master in Geospatial Technologies

This Erasmus Mundus-recognized Master of Science program prepares you to exploit new technologies to support environmental and societal decision-making affecting the future of our planet.

Master in Mobile Programming and Videogames

This master focuses on the development of content for mobile devices. An area that continues to grow, and where companies highly value the skills. The creation of mobile applications and videogames, mainly for iOS and Android devices, is essential in this market.


This huge and global community of students and instructors offers thousands of online courses. I usually collaborate to create different technology-related courses in the Udemy Platform.
