About
Expert in human pose estimation, computationally efficient deep learning, and computer vision. Lead author of OpenPose. 5 years of experience in performance-oriented C++ software development, including CUDA, AVX vectorization, multi-threading, embedded system programming, and Qt/GUI deployment. Mentored multiple students in research and software development, culminating in their contribution to OpenPose.

CMU:
I am a full-time Research Associate at The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) since Fall 2014 and M.S. student since Fall 2016. I am currently working under the supervision of professor Yaser Sheikh, and I previously worked for 2 years with professor Fernando De La Torre. The main projects I have contributed to are OpenPose, OpenPose Unity Plugin, the Panoptic Studio, IntraFace, and the FeelingSpector. I have also collaborated in projects with Ford and General Motors and IARPA, among others.

UPCT:
Before joining the Robotics Institute, I obtained a B.S. in Telecommunication System Engineering (similar to Electrical and Computer Engineering in US) from Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (UPCT), Spain. While an undergraduate, I had the opportunity to work on stereoscopic image rectification and embedded system problems under the supervision of professor Javier Toledo.
