Mapua physics professor presents complex systems research in Heraklion, Greece

Ms. Maria Teresa Pulido, a faculty member of the Department of Physics, presented five research papers in the 4th IoTBDS (International Conference on the Internet of Things, Big Data and Security) held in the University of Crete last May 2-4, 2019 in Heraklion City, Greece.

She presented interdisciplinary complex systems research done with undergraduate students who are majoring in physics or related double degree programs. These works investigated the effect of background music on coffee taste (with Nicole Ashley Santos); the sentiment of newspaper articles on the Battle of Marawi (With Dexter Dave Valdeavilla); depression symptoms and causes in college-age Filipinos (with Dexter Dave Valdeavilla, Nicole Ashley Santos and Agana Louisse Domingo); Metro Manila rainfall trends over four years (with Miguel Aaron Bobadilla and Ryan Gabriel Eugenio); and Filipino mood swings via tweets (with Rodalyn Balajadia and Vincent Louie Maglambayan).

Ms. Pulido is an Associate Professor in the Physics Department of the Mapúa University, as well as Data Protection Officer and Data Manager for the Mapúa TOMAS (Transportation Operations Management and Assessment Systems) Lab.
