About Who am I?

Hi! Welcome to my website.

My name is Manuel Martín Salvador. I am a 28 years old Spaniard born in the lovely city of Granada. Currently, I'm living in Bournemouth (United Kingdom) doing my PhD in Computer Science and working as a researcher in Bournemouth University. Some milestones of my education are:

  • 1998 - Primary School @ CEIP Vicente Aleixandre
  • 2004 - High School @ IES Mariana Pineda
  • 2009 - Computer Engineering @ University of Granada
  • 2011 - Master in Soft Computing and Intelligent Systems @ University of Granada

Apart from studying, I've been working as software programmer, researcher, web developer and system administrator. I also actively support free-software, open-data and open-government movements. For more information, please take a look to my CV.

My main hobbies are photography, watching tv-shows and reading. Actually, I had some photos in several exhibitions. But what I really enjoy is making my girlfriend and life partner Cristina smile.
