Virginia Francisco (PhD) works as a Teaching Assistant at the Departamento de Ingeniería del Software e Inteligencia ArtificialFacultad de InformáticaUniversidad Complutense de Madrid. She is also a member of the Instituto de Tecnología del Conocimiento.

Her research is oriented towards emotions and the importance of emotions in any attempt to make computer interfaces respond in some way to the afective nature of the content they are handling. I am specially interested in marking up of texts with emotions and emotionally voice synthesis.

Virginia also works in the field of Dependency Analysis, exploring how this analysis could be used to determine the ambit of negation and exploring how increase the currency of such type of systems.
