Since you’ve clicked the link to this page, I might as well write something interesting here. But, hey, I’m not very good at it so don’t expect anything exciting here.

My name is Sergio Alvarez Napagao (or Sergio Alvarez-Napagao in papers and/or other stuff). I’m a 29 years old guy born and living in Barcelona. I’ve always been involved in many things simultaneously, so I never know what to qualify my occupation as.

Since 2002 I’ve been a researcher at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. I’ve been involved in differents topics, but mainly on Grid Computing in the past and Artificial Intelligence nowadays. Currently I’m working in monitorization of organizations with normative-aware agents. If you want to know more, please visit my Research page.

My other big interest is photography, not only still photography but also in filmmaking. I’ve been involved in filmmaking projects in AVED since 2003. I also have a Flickr account where I post many of my photos.

If you understand Spanish or Catalan, I’m also collaborating in the Dame la Voz podcast.

Other project we are currently working on is about using sensors for scenic arts. In 2009 we held a public performance: Blink, but we expect to keep advancing in this topic quite soon. The software we have designed for transforming the sensors input to MIDI output is available as open source at
