Since February 2017, I am a research scientist at Google DeepMind.

I was a postdoctoral researcher in Yann LeCun’s group at the CILVR Lab (Computational Intelligence, Learning, Vision, and Robotics), between May 2014 and December 2016.

I obtained my PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in October 2012. My adviser was Guillermo Sapiro. During 2013 I worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at the IID (Information initiative at Duke) at Duke University.

I was born in Stuttgart, Germany, but I grew up in Montevideo, Uruguay. I did my Bs. and M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at the IIE, Universidad de la Republica Oriental del Uruguay.

My main research interests are in machine learning and it's applications to computer vision, and signal processing. Specifically,

Deep learning.

Sparse modeling and representation learning from high dimensional data.

Source separation, speech processing, and music information retreival.

Computer vision.
