Born in Venezuela, Adriana studied for her B.CompSc. degree at the Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV).   She received a "honour mention" for her undergraduate project, “A parallel algorithm for sparse LU decomposition by getting compatible sets” which was presented at the XXI Latin American Conference on Informatics (in Brazil). She taught on a number of computer science undergraduate courses at UCV for six years. 

After this, she continued her education in the UK and achieved several teaching qualifications, including a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education and Training. She was awarded an MSc in Computer Science by the Universities of Berne, Fribourg and Neuchâtel in Switzerland (specialism in Distributed Systems with a minor in Education).  During these studies, she worked as a teaching assistant at the Univesity of Fribourg on the “Computer Architecture” undergraduate course.

Adriana's M.Sc dissertation, “Activity Recognition for Motion-Aware Pervasive Systems”, was completed during a research visit to the University of Southampton.  Subsequently she was awarded a Mayflower Scholarship for Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Southampton, becoming a PhD candidate in Computer Science researching on learning analytics in higher education, whilst supporting the teaching in the department.

Adriana is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2013 and a Teaching Fellow for ECS since 2016.
