My name is Felipe Ortega. I am post-doc researcher and teacher working in the Dept. of Statistics and Operations Research, at Rey Juan Carlos University. I joined this Dept. in October 2012, after 5 years working in another URJC group (GSyC/Libresoft). I received a M.S. (2003) in Telecommunications Engineering from Alfonso X El Sabio University, and a Ph.D. (2009) in Computer Science from Rey Juan Carlos University. My main research line is the analysis of large scale online communities in the Internet. I am specialized in the analysis of Wikipedia data, in particular its community of authors. My thesis was the first one to provide a comparative quantiative analysis of the top 10 language editions of Wikipedia, from different points of view. I also work to develop novel methodologies to analyze open collaborative projects (like FLOSS development projects, Wikipedia and social networking platforms) involving a high number of participants.
I am interested in reserach, promotion and education/training on libre software. I collaborate teaching in the Master on Libre software, covering aspects related to my current lines of research (mainly on data analysis, statistics and the R statistical programming language), as well as in the Master on Decision Support Systems, both at URJC.
