Since I was as a child at school I have been
looking for a solution for dyslexia. First, I found
explanations studying Linguistics, and later I started
doing research to build solutions while doing a master
in Natural Language Processing and a PhD in Human Computer Interaction receiving some awards such as the European Young Researchers' Award or Innovator under 35, TR35 MIT’s Technology Review Spain.

Our research is focused on finding out what helps dyslexia and integrates the results in applications. For instance, the apps iDEAL eBook Reader (to assist reading for Android) and Dyseggxia (Piruletras) (to improve the spelling of children with dislexia for iOS) integrate our results with over a hundred thousand downloads.

Currently at CMU we are working on identifying dyslexia using games at large scale. 

I am also founder of the social enterprise Change Dyslexia to put our approach into practice at scale to significantly decrease school failure due to dyslexia.
