Research from David Rozado


David Rozado holds a B.Sc. in Information Systems from Boston University, a M.Sc. in Bioinformatics from the Free University of Berlin and a Ph.D in Computer Science from the Autonomous University of Madrid. David joined Otago Polytechnic early in 2015. His main area of research is in Human computer interaction with a focus on accessibility software and assistive technologies for people with motor impairment. He currently teaches Web programming 3, Databases 3 (with an emphasis in data miningmachine learning) and final year Project.
