Ana Fernández-Pampillón Cesteros is Lecturer and Researcher in the Faculty of Philology at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (UCM). From 1994 to 2000 she lectured in Computer Sciences at the Colegio Universitario de Segovia (UCM). From 1993 to 2009 she tutored in Computing Sciences at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED). Since 1996, she has been Lecturer and Researcher in Computational Linguistics at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (UCM).
As a researcher Ana Fernández-Pampillón Cesteros has participated in projects related to e-learning, b-learning, educational innovation and computational linguistics. Her main areas of research are computational lexicography (dictionaries, glossaries, thesauri and ontologies) and its application to virtual education (e-learning, semantic web and LMS). She is, currently, working on the development of new features for the "OdA" Digital Object Repository Tool, building Learning Object Repositories and Scholar Virtual Museums, and on the development of a Model for Quality Assessment of Digital Learning Materials.
Ana Fernández–Pampillón Cesteros was IT Teaching Support Faculty from July 2003 until December 2006 in the Office of Campus Virtual UCM (http://campusvirtual.ucm.es), where she worked in Campus Virtual's design, management and organisation, especially in educational aspects: coordination, teacher education in e-learning, educational ICT, learning space design, application and diffusion of standards that allow educational reusability of materials, contents and strategies in the CV-UCM. From March 2007 to July 2012 she was member of the Campus Virtual Advisory Board. From March 2007 to July 2014 she has been Vice Dean of Applied Technologies in Filology at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (UCM). Currently, she is member of the UCM Educational Technology Committee, and also member of AENOR (Spanish Association for standardization) in the Technical Committee of Information Technology AEN 71, Subcommittee SC 36 (e-learning) where she is coordinating the Working Subgroup AEN 71/SC36/GT 12 working on a new standard for Measuring the Quality of Digital Educational Materials (PNE 71362).
As a researcher she has participated in 20 R+D+i projects, of which she has directed 2, co-edited 5 books and co-authored in 14 others, authored and co-authored 18 indexed articles (SCOPUS) and 35 communications to congresses. She has been responsible for the organization of numerous R&D activities and has been a member of scientific committees of conferences, journals, R&D projects and training activities related to teaching and learning in virtual environments, educational innovation and computational linguistics. Her lines of research belong to the areas of Computational Lexicography (dictionaries, glossaries, electronic thesauri) in which she has co-directed a doctoral thesis, and Educational Technology (e-learning, virtual campuses, educational repositories and quality of learning and digital educational materials) in which she has co-directed, also, another doctoral thesis. She is a member of the UCM research group on "Implementation of Language, Software and Applications (ILSA)" (group no. 962022). She is currently working on the application of neurocortical models and cognitive models for the computational semantic representation of lexicon and text. She is also supervising doctoral theses in the PhD program in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics and co-directing an FPU contract. She has been awarded three sexenios and has been awarded with a PhD Prize.
