Nicolás García Belmonte is the head of Visualization Engineering at Uber. The Visualization group is comprised of UI/Web software engineers, computer graphics engineers, information designers and data engineers that build data products to explore self-driving car, geospatial and business data in collaboration with groups like the Advanced Technology Group (ATG), Maps, Sensing Inference and Research, AI Labs, Risk and Security and the Machine Learning Platform.  Prior to Uber, Nicolás run the interactive.twitter.com effort at Twitter, a public-facing platform that delivered visual narratives describing how big events were lived on Twitter with work featured on the NYTimes, Cannes, Twitter IPO and other outlets. Nicolas' interests span from information design to computer graphics, covering data journalism, abstract and scientific visualization and data art.  
Nicolás attended Lycée Franco-Argentin Jean Mermoz between 1995 and 2000. There he earned Scientific Baccalaureate with specialization in Physics and Chemistry.  In 2001, Nicolás enrolled Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires and studied Computer Science until 2007. His field of study spanned mathematics, logic, advanced numerical methods, OOP, functional programming. 
Meanwhile (2007 - 2014), Nicolás was an author for Open Source Projects. He is a big advocate for open source. As a developer, Nicolás created frameworks that had thousands of users and were acquired by companies in the US. He stopped working for Sencha in March 2012.
