Tech Manager | Senior Research Scientist

Seddi Labs


I am a Senior Research Scientist and Manager at SEDDI (Madrid) where I lead a technology team with expertise in render, optical capture, and AI. Before that, I was a Juan de la Cierva Fellow at MSLab of the URJC, and a Postdoctoral Researcher at Technicolor R&D (France). I completed my Ph.D. in 2016 in the Graphics and Imaging Lab of the University of Zaragoza (Spain). During my Ph.D. I had the opportunity to intern twice at Adobe Research (San Jose & Seattle, US).

My research interests span the fields of computer graphics, computer vision, and applied machine learning. In particular, I currently work on digitalization of fabric materials for the Fashion Industry, as well as machine learning-based simulations of avatars.

I proudly received the 2017 Premio de Investigación de la Sociedad Científica Informática de España y Fundación BBVA. Press coverage: FBBVA, Innova Spain, El País, El Mundo El Español
