Biography

Miguel Figueres joined the University of Huddersfield as Research Assistant in 2014. He started his research at Institute of Railway Research (IRR) focused on big data analytics techniques for extracting safety knowledge from free-text incident records (close call) and investigating the role of visualisation techniques in big data for effective risk communication. Currently he continues working at IRR as Research Fellow in the Big Data Risk Analysis program (BDRA).

Previously Miguel was Senior Research Technician in the Psychology Department (from 2005 till 2013) and Lecturer in the Electronics Engineering Department (2010-2011) at the University of Valencia. His work was focused on road and rail safety and human factors: assessing the risk level of the Spanish railway system, assessing significant changes in railways or developing different ad-hoc tools applied to road and rail safety management. Miguel has an MSc degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Valencia and a PhD degree in psychology from University of Valencia.
