About Me

I am a master's student in biomedical engineering at the University of los Andes in Bogota, Colombia. I received my Bachelor's degree in biomédical engineering with a double minor in Bioinformatics and Computational Mathematics. Additionally, I work as a graduate research assistant in computer vision at my university's CinfonIA research center under Pablo Arbeláez's supervision. I've worked on several research projects focused on deep learning and computer vision for medical and natural images. My main research interests are video analysis, biomedical image processing, and vision & language.
