About Who am I?

Hi! Welcome to my website.

My name is Manuel and my full surname is Martín Salvador (the first is from my father and the second from my mother). I am a 26 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, 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.
