PhD Researcher

EPFL

Nov 2018 – Present Lausanne, Switzerland
Studying the inductive bias of deep learning and how it affects its generalization and robustness properties. My research has already provided insights to improve adversarial defenses, out-of-distribution generalization, and to understand the role of architecture in deep learning.
 
 
 
 
 

Research Intern

Philips Healthcare Research

Jul 2017 – Oct 2017 Hamburg, Germany
As a research intern, I was involved in different projects related to computational medical imaging and fetal ultrasound. In particular, I was in charge of the development of different self-supervised deep learning algorithms for representation learning and medical image reconstruction.
 
 
 
 
 

Master Student

Delft University of Technology

Sep 2016 – Aug 2018 Delft, Netherlands
For my master thesis I carried out research on deep learning for multidomain graphs and on sparse sampling for inverse problems with tensors.
 
 
 
 
 

Research Assistant

Microwaves and Radar Group, UPM

Jul 2015 – Jul 2016 Madrid, Spain
During my time at the group, I developed a complete electromagnetic simulator for the mm-wave radar that the group was developing for airport security applications. In particular, we were one of the first groups to propose the use of 3D rendering techniques from computer graphics to accurately model the scattering from the human skin at the submillimeter band.
