Education

  • 2006- 2010

    Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain.

    My PhD is on the topic of part-based detection and tracking of objects. In particular, I
    worked on models for detecting inner facial structures by combining discriminatively-trained
    individual part models with probabilistic shape models. I also worked on how to use inner
    object structure in model-free tracking, that is to say, when no a priori knowledge of the object
    appearance or the arrangement of its parts is available.
