I'm one of the co-founders of fezoo, a start up company located in Barcelona area.
design novel interfaces that allow communicating with all sorts of devices in a more "human" and fancy way. 
Previously, I was a post-doctoral researcher at Idiap, in Martigny.
I obtained my PhD by the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), working in the Image and Video Processing group.

In this page, you will mostly find information related to research as post-doc and phd student.
