I'm an associated professor of the Computer Science (CS) Department and researcher of the Document Analysis and Pattern Recognition Group (DAG) since september 2010. Before, I've been in other research groups like the Pattern Recognition and Human Language Technology (PRHLT) group in the Instituto Tecnológico de Informática and the CVPR Unit from ISI, Kolkata. I get my BSc degree in Mathematics in 2001 and the PhD in Computer Science, in 2006, by the Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona, Spain, and the Université Nancy 2, France, in 2006.
My research interests are probabilistic graphical models (PGMs), in particular learning and inference algorithms and how we can applied them to different document analysis tasks such as layout analysis, community detection, document forensics and symbol retrieval, among others. I'm also interested in parallel computing paradings, specially on GPUs programing. See my publication's list and the research and transfer project list in which I'm also involved into.
I'm lecturer of database courses at undegraduate level in the Computer Engineering degree of the UAB and in the inter-university degree in Bioinformatics coordinated by the UPF university. At post-graduate level, I'm lecturer in the M2 module of the Computer vison master and the Big data processing for life sciences graduate diploma.
