Biography

I am a researcher in Nokia Bell Labs department for Distributed Reality Solutions, working mainly on the next generation of immersive video technologies. 

As professional background, I'm a senior software engineer with a large experience in software design and implementation of real-time, distributed, large-scale video processing and distribution systems. I joined Alcatel-Lucent in 2015 as senior software engineer working for video BU. In this role, I participated in the implementation of several key features for the video origin and cloud DVR product such as video transcoding, Adaptive streaming support and DRM. In addition, I was a key member in the creation of video automated testing and health monitoring tools and participated actively in cluster high availability features such as software redundancy and failure recovery. In parallel, I was working on my PhD in computer science (University of Alicante, 2016) focused mainly in video based techniques for automated vehicles traffic monitoring and classification.

Currently, as member of DRS department I'm working on immersive video technologies focused mainly on defining the next generation of human communication solutions. I'm generally interested in low latency techniques for video streaming and mixed reality.
