About Me

I recently co-founded MovumTech (www.movumtech.com), a startup created to research and apply innovative Artificial Intelligence-based solutions to Dentistry.

B.Eng (2005) and M.Sc. (2007) in Computer Science from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, I received my Ph.D. in 2009 for my research on Computer Vision and Robotics applied to Agriculture, a joint effort from the Spanish National Research Council and the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. After my Ph.D. I spent 3 years as a postdoc at the Vision Lab in Caltech, working on visual recognition, action recognition and object detection/tracking. Then, I joined Technicolor Research & Innovation as a Senior Scientist, where for two years I researched visual recognition applied to new technologies and led a 3D facial animation project for the movie industry. Then, I was for four years Head of Research at Transmural Biotech, a startup (spin-off of Hospital Clinic from Barcelona) created to research and apply novel Computer Vision and Machine Learning methods for non-invasive clinical diagnosis.

My broad research interests include Data Science, Artificial Intelligence (Computer Vision, Machine/Deep Learning) and Robotics.
