I am a research scientist at Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) in the Computer Vision group. My research is focused on machine learning and computer vision, currently with a special interest in learning representations for large-scale image retrieval, document image understanding, and text recognition and understanding in the wild.
I received my Ph.D. from the Computer Vision Center in the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain, in collaboration with the Computer Vision group at XRCE, supervised by Ernest Valveny and Florent Perronnin. After that I was a postdoc at the LEAR group in INRIA Grenoble, working on large-scale object detection with Cordelia Schmid. Since 2014 I am a research scientist in the Computer Vision group at XRCE.
