I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Vision Lab (CVL) at ETH Zürich, Switzerland, 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 prof. 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. Particularly, I am interested in developing techniques using Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) for image-to-image translation problems such as image editing, semantic manipulations, style-guided transformations, super-resolution among others.

I am very much into the photography world. As to the date, I own a Sony α7III, and I love to shoot with an 18-35mm lens. You can check some of my pictures below.
In a very different scenario, I am a backpack traveler, I try to explore different places as much as possible, a gym enthusiast with empirical background, an not-so-pro player of Ultimate Frisbee, and I try to maintain my life eating as healthy as possible.
