Miscellaneous Information

Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) is a progressive pregnancy complication in which inter-twin vascular connections in the shared placenta result in a blood flow imbalance between the twins. The most effective therapy is to sever these connections by laser photo-coagulation. However, the limited field of view of the fetoscope hinders their identification. A potential solution is to augment the surgeon’s view by creating a mosaic image of the placenta.
Currently, during my PhD at University College of London(UCL), I am researching mosaicking techniques and their application to a clinical setting under the supervision of Prof. Sebastien Ourselin and Dr. Tom Vercauteren. Previously, I coursed M.Sc at UCL in medical imaging.

Back in Barcelona, I studied a the equivalent of a 5 years Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications engineering with the specialisation on signal processing, machine learning and computer vision. I finished my Bachelor Thesis in Vienna (Austria) in Object Recognition with the supervision of Dr. Xavier Giró and Dr. Matthias Zeppelzauer.

My interests are quite broad and they touch computer vision, machine learning, image processing and other related disciplines. To name a few, mosaicking, tracking, slam, object detection, object recognition, segmentation, etc.
