Localization and mapping
Robotics enthusiast. Working fast, smart and focused.
I am postgraduate researcher @ University of the Balearic Islands
I live in paradise. I have a wonderful family. I occupy my days taking care of my family, practicing sport and enjoying my work. Climbing, hiking and Mediterranean food are my hobbies.
At work I am very organized and efficient. I like to plan, prioritize and execute tasks with decision. I hate wasting time. I need to have long-term goals to maintain a global vision of projects. But I divide the tasks into very simple parts to finally obtain a complex result.

2002 - 2004
Bachelor Degree Scientific-technologicalIES Guillem Colom Casasnovas, Spain
2017 - Current
Senior Computer Vision EngineerROVCO Subsea, United Kingdom
Designing online 3D underwater mapping algorithms, based on an accurate Visual-SLAM positioning system and semi-dense 3D reconstructions. I am developing cutting-edge solutions for reliable and impressive 3D underwater reconstructions to be executed online during the robot mission. The objective is to provide both ROVs pilots and technicians or inspectors with instant visualizations of marine structures.
