About Me

I am a PhD student in the Operating Systems Group at UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), and a resident Student at the NVIDIA GPU Center of Excellence (GCEO) in the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). My work focuses on Neural Networks for Real-time analysis using GPUs.

Before starting my PhD I did my master thesis at Yahoo! labs Barcelona, where I worked from 2010 to 2014.

My research interests are:

  • Neural
    Networks
  • Deep
    Learning
  • Real-time analysis
  • Scalable & Distributed Systems
  • GPU
    Computing
