I am a Machine Learning Engineer at Statsbomb. I love creating systems based on data that can interact with the real world. My research interests lie in the general area of machine learning, particularly in deep learning and its applications in object detection, image generation and instance segmentation.
Prior to coming to Statsbomb, I worked at Gradiant as a Machine Learning Research Engineer and at Desigual Headquarters as a Data Science consultant. I spent one year in Barcelona and one year in the United States (Purdue University) to do a M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence. I got my B.Sc. from University of A Coruña after an exchange year in Norway.

Research and implementation of Deep Learning based models for object detection and semantic segmentation. Optimization of these solutions for being embedded on UAVs (Nvidia Jetson) or deployed in the cloud. Leadership, coordination and development of the teams AI methodologies and infrastructure.
Developed machine learning models for analyzing stock distribution and sales / returns forecasting. Research on using CNN for database image retrieval and user recommendations.
I was a member of Purdue Datalab and collaborated with PhD students by presenting, exploring and discussing new topics on AI research. Also took data mining, machine learning courses and finish my Master Thesis: Feature construction and classification on Time Series.
This was the moment when my adventure with AI began. I remember being totally impressed with the CNNs of the moment! I took courses that were mainly related with supervised / unsupervised learning approaches.
I got awarded with Erasmus and NILS scholarship. I did my final project with three ingredients: Optical Flow, a GoPro camera and my own bike.
This is where I learned about data structures, algorithm complexity and so many other things that I use so often that still surprise myself from time to time.
Sensors: Special Issue Deep Learning Based UAV Detection, Classification, and Tracking

Collaborated with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in PEGASAS project with the aim of enhance general aviation safety. Developed a model which could classify flights in different categories (using data obtained from airborne sensors) through an unsupervised learning stage and an active learning procedure. Tools: Python, Scikit-Learn, Pandas, C, OpenMPI, Java
Presented in PEGASAS 2017 meeting at Texas A&M University

Analysis using Twitter public API where we focused in understanding how politicians relate in the social network. We performed a Monte Carlo simulation of corruption behavior spreading with the aim of observing how corruption flows starting from some seed users that were imprisoned or involved in some case.
