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 Universidad de Los Andes (Colombia).

My main research interests are Computer Vision generative problems such as image-to-image translation, image editing, semantic manipulations, language-guided transformations, image/video enhancement, and super-resolution. I have also worked in the past with Facial Expression Recognition/Manipulation and Facial Analysis.

Reviewer Experience

I have served as a reviewer for top venue Computer Vision conferences such as CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, and ACCV, as well as journals such as TPAMI and Computer and Graphics.

 


Intereses no académicos:

Me gusta mucho el mundo de la fotografía. A la fecha tengo una cámara 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, a gym and nutritionist enthusiast with empirical background, and a not-so-pro Ultimate Frisbee player.
