About me

I am a PhD student of the ELLIS PhD & PostDoc program at the Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial (IRI), where I am supervised by Prof. Carme Torras and Dr. Adrià Colomé. I am currently visiting the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), where I am advised by Prof. Amir Zamir .

Previously, I interned at Amazon, where I worked on computer vision and the learning-to-rank problem, and at Logitech, where I worked on voice conversion. 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. I have played bassoon since I was six years old. 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 publications. Please don't hesitate to contact me for further information.
