Research Topics


I am a computer scientist, amateur photographer and art passionate. Since March 2017 I am working at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) pursuing a PhD degree in Computer Science, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Aljoša Smoli? within the V-SENSE project.
In 2011 I received the M.Sc. degree in Computer Science with a specialization in Visual Computing from ETH Zürich. I also hold a B.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City.
Before joining TCD, I worked for about five years at Fraunhofer IGD as part of the Cultural Heritage Digitization group, where we developed a system to automatically scan museum objects named CultLab3D. Previous to that, during my master studies, I worked at Disney Research Zürich on several projects related to Stereoscopic 3D video processing.

Research Topics

My research interests focus on computer graphics, in particular Augmented Reality (AR).
