Postgraduate research student
My name is Javier. I am originally from Mexico City where I worked for several transnational companies and television studios for over ten years. I specialise in marketing, multimedia and visual comunication in several director roles such as Art & Design director for ZF Friedrichshafen Mexico. I have also worked for over 10+ years providing interactive and design consultancy for cultural heritage institutions and research projects. When I arrived in the UK in 2006, I became a teacher for Southampton Solent University and Southampton Unversity. I taught design, multimedia and 3D CAD technologies among others.
I am interestd in cultural heritage. For this rason my research has allways been related to culture and pop culture. I spent 4 years independently researching several aspects of Mexican Wrestling and its relation with modern society in Mexico. This included Fim Studies, Anthropology, Marketing, Design and Sociology among others. Another project that I worked with was in the use of 3D printing technologies to develop experimental architectural visualisations for archaeologist and museums.
I am currently part of the Web Science Institute and part of the Web Science DTC funded by EPSRC.
