  • 2003: Doctorate, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Valencia, Spain.
  • 1991: Bachelor Computer Science, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Cali, Colombia.
  • Director of the research, development and innovation office.
  • Professor of Artificial intelligence, data structure  and Programming, Electronic and computer department.

Professor Linares has been working on creating and developing software that allows children with disabilities to take advantage of technology.   His research is on language models - mathematical tools to help process and recognize natural speech, perform optical character recognition (OCR), and other similar signal processing more effectively. Currently, professor Linares applies these techniques in the design of video games to help children with severe hearing impairments with therapy.
