I graduated in Industrial Engineering at the Politechnics School at the University of Girona in 2006. I received the VIBOT master degree (European Master in Vision and Robotics) in 2008. The VIBOT master is a collaboration between the Université de Bourgogne (Le Creusot, France), the Universitat de Girona (Girona, Spain) and Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland). I completed the PhD on Computer Vision and Robotics at the Computer Vision and Robotics Group at the University of Girona in 2011. My supervisors were Prof. Joaquim Salvi and Prof Yvan R. Petillot. I am currently working at FICOSA-ADASENS as a Research and Development Vision Expert designing Advanced Driver Assitance Systems.

Research interests: computer vision, autonomous robotics, 3D reconstruction, stereovision, image processing, visual odometry, underwater vision, medical imaging, robotics, mobile robotics, underwater robotics, localization, navigation, mapping, SLAM, medical robotics, Earth observation, space exploration, human spaceflights, sustainability, solar energy...
