I currently hold a postdoctoral researcher position in the Computer Vision Lab (CVL) at ETH Zürich, working with prof. Luc Van Gool and Dr. Radu Timofte. Before joining CVL, I spent 5 delightful years in the Biomedical Computer Vision (BCV) group working closely with Pablo Arbelaez at the University of Los Andes (Colombia).
My areas of interest lie in the field of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Technologies, namely Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. My current research is focused on Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), Facial Expressions Recognition and Affective Computing. I also enjoy other related fields involving Deep Learning techniques, Image Processing, Programming Languages and Photography (Landscapes, nature and long exposure photos).
I was awarded three consecutive times by the Google Research Awards for Latin America (2017, 2016, 2015), also called Latin America Research Awards (LARA), with my project: “Learning Dynamic Action Units for Three-dimensional Facial Expression Recognition” under the guidance of Prof. Pablo Arbelaez.
