Noelia Hernández obtained her BSc in Computer Science in 2007 and her MSc in Advanced Electronics Systems (Intelligent Systems) in 2009 from the University of Alcalá, where she got her PhD in Intelligent Systems in 2014. Her thesis presented a new approach for estimating the global position of a mobile device in indoor environments by using WiFi devices.
In 2008, she started working for the Robesafe Group of the Electronics Department at the University of Alcalá in the field of vision-based ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). She participated in different projects, being a full-time researcher in the CABINTEC project aimed to develop a vision-based drowsiness and distraction detection system to warn professional drivers and avoid traffic accidents.
Noelia was a visiting researcher at the Wimo Group (University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom) during three months in 2012 under the supervision of Dr. Mahesh K. Marina. She also was a post-doctoral visiting researcher during three months in 2014 at the Computational Intelligence Lab (Yonsei University, Korea) under the supervision of Dr. Euntai Kim.
Noelia joined the Intelligent Systems Laboratory at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in 2015 as a postdoctoral researcher to take part in the AVATRACK project.
Her research interest mainly focus on indoor localization, machine learning, computer vision and ADAS for Intelligent Transportation systems.
Extraordinary Doctorate Award from the University of Alcalá in the Engineering and Architecture area, 2013/2014.
