I am a research scientist with Telefónica R&D in Barcelona. I work on machine learning and artificial intelligence. I was born in Riudarenes, Girona (1980). I did my MSc (2007) and PhD (2011) in computer science at the Music Technology Group of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. During that time, I was also an adjunct professor with the Dept. of Information and Communication Technologies of the same university (2006-2011). I did a postdoc in artificial intelligence at IIIA-CSIC, the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute of the Spanish National Research Council in Bellaterra, Barcelona (2011-2015). I have had research stays at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany (2010), the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken, Germany (2011), and visited Goldsmiths, University of London, United Kingdom (2012). I have been involved in more than 10 research projects, funded by Spanish and European institutions, and co-authored over 100 publications, many of them highly-cited and in top-tier journals and conferences, in diverse scientific areas. I also regularly act as peer reviewer for some of those and other publications, and occasionally as evaluator in international research funding agencies.
