Monica Tentori is professor in computer science …

After doing my post-doctoral training with Gilian R. Hayes at UC Irvine and working in different areas in support of healthcare, I’ve been able to partner with researchers in Ubiquitous computing, HCI, and PervasiveHealthcare from around the world.

The majority of my work is project based. I am passionate about understanding how innovative ways of interaction when using Natural User Interfaces can reveal behaviour patterns that might be of relevance for the screening, diagnosis or treatment of individuals with autism; and at a collective level make assumptions on how the city behaves. This involves using a mixed method approach for experimental research involving user-centered design techniques, human-centered AI, big data and data analytics.

I am currently the head of the Veritas Research Lab, where I am happy to say that I have the privilege to work with very talented, smart, motivated and hard-working students. If you would like to become one of my awesome students review our job openings here.

I love my work and being involved in my son’s and husband’s life, which really means attending to soccer games and practices, swimming lessons and so on…

My Calendar

Please refer to my calendar to find a suitable time meet me or know my whereabouts if I am not in the office. We work from home on Wednesdays so you more likely find me on email, whats up or meet.

If you would like to schedule a meeting write to mtentori[at]cicese[dot]edu[mx]. Even I have a slot schedule please ask me if you can still meet me some of our my tasks can be rescheduled.

Finding my office

After entering CICESE, head north until you reach the very last building on top of the hill called Telematica. The telematica building has three entrances: a back west, a front west and front north. I recommend you to either use the back west or the front west entrance.

If you choose the the back west entrance, which is closest to my office, you will need to call me so I can open the door for you as it has a fingerprint key.

If you choose the front west, you need to sign in with CICESE’s security guy and he will redirect you to my office. You will need to go downstairs one floor and you will find my office in the third door to the left.

To reach the Telematica building you can drive or wait for the CICESE mobile van. You can also walk but believe is a huge hike. Parking in free anywhere available.
