Leonardo Salayandia is a Research Specialist at the CyberShARE Center of Excellence under the supervision of Dr. Ann Gates. His research efforts involve the application of software engineering principles and semantic web technologies to build tools that help scientists to create, manage, and execute processes that model their scientific tasks.
Some of the projects in which Leonardo has been involved include:
Leonardo received his M.S. in Computer Science at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) in 2002 in the area of Computer Architecture under the guidance of Dr. Patricia Teller. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Computer Science under the guidance of Dr. Ann Gates and Dr. Paulo Pinheiro da Silva.
