I’m currently a post-doc researcher at the Inria Asclepios team in Sophia-Antipolis, France, under the supervision of Drs. M Sermesant and N Ayache.
- Associate Professor at the TIC department within the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona Spain, working closely with the groups of Drs. G Piella, MA González Ballester, O Camara, and BH Bijnens.

- Post-doc researcher at the Hospital Clínic, Barcelona Spain, within the Arrhythmia, Resynchronization and Cardiac Imaging unit of Drs. M Sitges, L Mont and J Brugada.

- PhD from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona Spain (CISTIB group, TIC Department), working under the supervision of Dr. Drs. M De Craene and AF Frangi.

My current research interests target the statistical analysis of 2D/3D cardiac motion and deformation patterns, for the understanding of disease apparition and evolution, and, to a certain extent, computer-aided diagnosis. My first focus is on motion/deformation extraction (speckle-tracking and image registration) and spatiotemporal alignment techniques (statistical atlas), and was more recently extended to pattern analysis and representation learning techniques. On the clinical side, my work has special dedication to the fields of echocardiography, resynchronization therapy (CRT) and heart failure.
