My name is Israel Pineda, currently, I work in the School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at Yachay Tech University.

Previously, I worked in the Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality Lab at Chonbuk National University, South Korea. My research is about the Level Set Method and its use in scientific computing, computer graphics, physics-based simulations, computer vision, and image processing. I love computer science and math. They are amazing tools to discover the wonders of the world.

Additionally, I love language learning as a medium to connect with other people, cultures, and ideas. Born in Ecuador, I am a Spanish native speaker, I been involved with English for a long time, during my years living in South Korea I learned the Korean language, and lately, I've been learning Portuguese on my spare time. I hold a black belt in Taekwondo and I have practiced a couple of other martial arts over the years.
