Short Bio:

I am a Nicaraguan national who has had the luck to live and study in various countries. After finishing my high school studies in Nicaragua, I obtained my degrees of Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) and Master of Engineering (with the Multimedia and Signal Processing lab) at McGill University in Montreal, QC, Canada in 2003 and 2006, respectively. In my masters I developed a novel codec for bursty erasure correction. I pursued my PhD at INRIA in Rennes, France, on topics including image compression, image description and content-based image search, obtaining my diploma in 2010. Since October 2010, I have been a member of Technicolor Research & Innovation in Rennes, France, first in a postdoctoral position and, since June 2012, as a permanent researcher.
