Welcome to my research page

I am Francisco Iacobelli. I am currently a Ph.D. student at the Computer Science department of Northwestern University. My research explores intelligent strategies of information retrieval for applications that collect useful information from the web.

I got my undergraduate degree in Systems Engineer and Informatics at Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile . I got my Masters in Computer Science at DePaul University with a concentration in AI.

Other interests include: intelligent tutoring systems and other aspects of AI applied to the education of children.

I currently work with Larry Birnbaum at the Infolab

I also worked developing Virtual Peers for minority children with Justine Cassell at the ArticuLab. Check it out.
