I am a Senior Research Scientist in the Perception team at Google Research. Before, I was a PhD student at the Computer Vision Lab in Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zürich) under the supervision of Prof. Luc Van Gool and the guidance of Dr. Jordi Pont-Tuset. I received a Degree and M.Sc. in Telecommunications Engineering from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC).

I have interned at Bell Labs with Prof. Sebastian Randel, Facebook with Prof. Fernando de la Torre, and Google Research with Prof. Vittorio Ferrari. My main research interest is segmentation with special focus on video object segmentation by using deep learning.
