My name is Javier Hernandez and I was born in 1983 in Spain. I grew up in Barcelona and moved to America in 2006 to pursue my professional and personal dreams.

Currently, I am a Research Scientist in the Media Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and my research is mainly focused on the automatic analysis and recognition of affective states of people such as daily life stress. My work leverages techniques from Human Computer Interaction, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Psychology, and Psychophysiology.
