My areas of interest lie in the field of Machine Learning, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence and Technologies, specifically in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. Within this field, my current research is focused on Facial Expressions Recognition and Affective Computing. I also enjoy exploring other related fields involving Deep Learning techniques, Image Processing, Programming Languages and Photography.
I have been awarded two years in a row by the Google Research Awards for Latin America (2015, 2016) under my project: “Learning Dynamic Action Units for Three-dimensional Facial Expression Recognition”(Sound better in English) in joint with Prof Pablo Arbelaez.
Press coverage (in spanish):
Nowadays (2017) I’m doing a PhD in Engineering at Universidad de los Andes, CO.
I’m part of the Biomedical Computer Vision (BCV) group at Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia. Our lead researcher is Prof Pablo Arbelaez.
In our group we study several medical and non-medical problems such as: Automated Detection of Lung Cancer with Artificial Intelligence, Detection of Breast Cancer using Thermographic Images, Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy using Artificial Intelligence, Action recognition in Videos, among many others.
