María Poveda-Villalón is a postdoctoral researcher at Ontology Engineering Group of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.
Her research activities focus on Ontological Engineering, Knowledge Representation and the Semantic Web. Previously she finished her studies as an engineer in Computer Science (2009) by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and then she moved to study the Artificial Intelligence Research Master finished in 2010 in the same university.
She has collaborated during a research stay with Mondeca (París, France) funded by the mobility and internationalization program by the Consejo Social of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. She has been also collaborating with the Free University of Berlin during a three-month research stay in 2012 funded by Spanish mobility and internationalization program for PhD studies (Orden EDU/2719/2011.
