Welcome to my personal website!!

I am a Robotics Vision Scientist at iRobot Corporation in London, UK. My research is focused on real-time Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) and 3D reconstruction techniques for vision-based localization and perception. In addition, I also work on robust feature extraction and deep learning techniques for a different range of applications.

Previously, I worked as a Reserach Scientist in the Computer Vision Group (CVG) in Toshiba Research Europe, Cambridge, UK (2014-2015); Research Associate at the BORG Lab, School of Interactive Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA working with Dr. Frank Dellaert (2013) and at at the Advanced Laparoscopy and Computer Vision (ALCoV) group under the supervision of Dr. Adrien Bartoli (2012).

I obtained my PhD in 2011 from the University of Alcalá, Madrid, Spain. My PhD thesis was about using SLAM techniques for assisting visually impaired users and humanoid robots during navigation. I was a member of the RobeSafe group, working under the supervision of Dr. Luis Miguel Bergasa.

During my PhD I had the opportunity of visiting different countries and the pleasure of meeting very interesting people. In 2008 I did a 3-months internship at Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of Dr. Frank Dellaert. In 2009, I did an internship at Imperial College London under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Davison. In 2010, I did an internship at AIST, Tsukuba under the supervision of Dr. Olivier Stasse working with humanoid robots. I really thank all of them for the opportunity they offered me. It was a pleasure working there and meeting nice labmates!!

Since 2009, I am one of the co-founders of Vision Safety Technologies Ltd a spin-off company established to commercialize computer vision systems for road infrastructure inspection.
