I got my Master of Electrical Engineering from the University of Alcalá, Spain in 2005. I work at the GRAM research group within the Department of Signal Theory and Communications, where I defended my PhD in Electrical Engineering on may 18, 2010, entitled "Visual Vocabularies for Category-Level Object Recognition". In 2008, I spent 6 months in lovely Leuven, working with Tinne Tuytelaars and the VISICS research group. Summer 2010, I visited Silvio Savarese's group at University of Michigan.
Research interests (in reverse chronological order): unsupervised learning, activity recognition, object category pose estimation, semantic visual vocabularies, category-level object recognition, traffic signs recognition/detection.
