Computer Scientist

My research work is at the intersection of computer vision and computational imaging. My research aims to design computational imaging systems and develop novel computer vision algorithms to improve final vision tasks while obtaining benefits like privacy protection, compression, etc. My research starts from the camera itself (hardware) and finishes with developing novel computer vision algorithms (software).

I got my B. Sc., M. Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Universidad Industrial de Santander, Colombia, in 2015, 2018, and 2022, respectively. Currently I’m an intern researcher in the Stanford Vision and Learning Lab (SVL) under the supervision of Prof. Juan Carlos Niebles.

Journal and conference papers I have published



In this project, we design the camera lens to perform human pose estimation while preserving users’ privacy.

In this project we developed AgroTIC, a smartphone-based application for the agricultural sector in Colombia aimed at reducing such digital breach through smartphones low-cost and ubiquitous technology.

Research project developed with Ecopetrol S.A., which includes the development of optimization algorithms for time to depth conversion, and development of modules for DesicionSpace Geoscience Software.
