    About me

    I am a first year PhD student at the Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial (IRI) advised by Prof. Carme Torras, Dr. Adrià Colomé, and Prof. Amir Zamir. I will visit the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in my second PhD year as part of the ELLIS PhD & PostDoc program.

    Previously, I worked on the learning-to-rank problem during an internship at Amazon and on voice conversion at Logitech. I hold a Master's degree in Data Science from EPFL and a Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications Technologies and Services Engineering from UPC.

    Besides academia, an essential part of my life is focused on music, which helped me to develop my creative side in all aspects. I have played bassoon since I was six years old and I am very proud to have been a member of several orchestras including the International Regions Orchestra and the Barcelona Youth Orchestra. I have also had the privilege to take part in classes from international soloists like Gustavo Nuñez and Silvia Coricelli. Take a look at my musical resume for further details.

    If you want to know more about me, take a look at my resume or keep browsing through my personal website to check my background and my projects. Please don't hesitate to contact me for further information.
