About me

Digital Business Analyst, Ph.D. in Computer Science
image

Currently, I am Digital Business Analyst at Fujitsu (BE). Prior to that, I have been working as a Scientific Software Engineer at CISTIB/UPF (ES), R&D Engineer in Intelligent Systems at Inspiralia (ES), Consultant in Energy Efficiency at E²=MC (BE), Consultant in Software Implementation at Sofico (BE), and Business Analyst at FIS (BE).

Since January 2011, I am Ph.D. in Computer Science from Mines ParisTech (FR). My Ph.D. was done at Asclepios/INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (FR). My thesis mainly deals with the analysis of medical images and took place within the framework of the EU Marie Curie project 3D Anatomical Human (3DAH).

Before starting my Ph.D., I took courses in computer vision and robotics at ViCOROB/UdG (ES). In 2005, I graduated Industrial Engineer in Computer Science (Ing./M.Sc.) from ISIB (BE).
