about me

I am a computer scientist, amateur photographer and art lover. Since March 2017 I'm at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) pursuing a PhD degree in Computer Science, under the supervision of Prof. Aljosa Smolic within the V-SENSE project.

In 2011 I received a M.Sc. degree in Computer Science with a specialization in Visual Computing from ETH Zürich. I also hold a B.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Universidad Iberioamericana in Mexico City.

My current research is focused on Augmented Reality, particularly applied to mobile devices. Before joining TCD I worked for about five years at Fraunhofer IGD as part of the Cultural Heritage Digitization group, where we developed a system named CultLab3D that automatically scans museum objects. Previous to that, during my master studies, I worked at Disney Research Z├╝rich on several projects related to Stereoscopic 3D video processing.
