Luis Gascó Sánchez

I am doing my doctoral research at the Instrumentation and Applied Research Group in a new research line known as Citizen Data Science. Specifically, I am looking for new uses of ICT’s in noise management systems in cities and transport infrastructures using Big Data technologies to take into account the citizens’ opinion in government, such as Natural Language Processing, Open Data and Advanced Data Analysis. In 2016, I was accepted in the European Institute of Innovation and Technology Doctoral School, where I am learning a lot about technology transfer and entrepreneurship, my main interest after finishing my PhD.

Experience

Researcher - UPM

Jul.2014 - Now

Researcher in Instrumentation and Applied Acoustics Research Group doing my PhD research on "Acoustics in smartcities", some of the task that have been done are:
● Statistical analysis of noise attitude survey carried out on Malaga
● Analysis of the noise level data in the smart city infrastructure set up in Malaga (Spain)
● Analysis of the ways of reporting noise data in major cities and international airports of Europe, USA and Australia

Visitor Researcher - TÉLÉCOM PARISTECH

SEPT.2017 - DEC.2017

Three-month research stay in Paris, at "Greta Team" from Télécom ParisTech. I developed a methodology for analyzing texts from Online Social Networks. The main tasks were:
● Preprocess short texts: Slang normalization and spelling mistakes correction.
● Feature extraction : Part-of-Speech, statistical features, sentiment features, and word embeddings.
● Short-text classification: Use of Supervised Machine Learning algorithms for short-text classification.
● Noise taxonomy: Creation of a noise taxonomy using WordNet and DBPedia with the aim of detecting the noise source people speak about in texts.

Research assistant - UPM

Sept.2013 - July 2014

Research assistant in the Instrumentation and Applied Acoustics Research Group in which I participated in different research projects:
● Implementation and design of a psychoacoustic test in Matlab to determine the level of disturbance that therapeutic sounds produces in autistic children.
● Analysis and evaluation of the uncertainty of sound system used in acoustical therapies in the research done by PhD students.
● Collaboration in consultancy works aboust noise control done by the research group to BSH Electrodomésticos S.A.

Grant holder - CAEND

May.2013-Jul.2013

Research grant obtained on a competitive basis where I developed a virtual laboratory to simulate façade sound insulation trials in LabVIEW programming language. This laboratory was tested using Monte Carlo Method and with real students from MSc in Acoustic Engineering in Industry and Transport.

Education

2016 - Present

EIT DIGITAL PhD Certification

Student of the Doctoral School of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT Digital). This institution has accepted 150 doctoral students across Europe since 2012, its main objective is training students in technology transfer and entrepreneurship. My research is part of the "Digital cities" action line that covers projects related to autonomous transport, open data and urban data analytics.EIT Digital website

2015-2016

MASTER EN BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE Y BIG DATA

Master taught at the oldest Business School in Spain (Escuela de Organización Industral). During this year I acquired knowledge related to business metrics, technology, data analytics and professional skills needed to provide professional services in areas like data science, business analytics and big data management. I learned how to set-up and how to use Business Intelligence systems as Tableau, Qlikview and Pentaho. I also learned tools to do advance analytics as Python, R, Hadoop or MongoDB. Syllabus

2016 - Present

PhD in Engineering

Doctoral research carried out in the Instrumentation and Applied Acoustics Research Group. My research is part of "Acoustic and Cities" research line, in which the acquisition and processing of open data are being carried out with the objective of developing tools to increase the acceptance of transport infrastructures.PhD programme syllabus

2013-2014

MSc in Acoustic Engineering in Industry and Transport

Master of Science given in Escuela de Industriales, from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Basic knowledge about scientific research was obtained, as well as a broad knowledge in the different branches of Acoustic Engineering such as Environmental Acoustics, Ultrasonic or Noise Control. From the technological point of view, we acquired deep knowledge of Matlab and LabVIEW applied to the acquisition, processing and analysis of acoustic signals in real time.Syllabus

2009-2013

B.S. in Sound and Image (Telecommunication) Engineering

Bachelor of Science from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Among the main competencies acquired are the design and evaluation of strategies for processing and analysing audio and video signals. In addition, technical competencies related to programming, critical evaluation of technological solutions, management of regulations and regulations were obtained. It was also developed a high analytical capacity for the resolution of complex problems. Syllabus
