About Me

I’m a software engineer with a background in security and in web development. I’m currently working at Onsite.fun, developing a better way to connect distributed teams.

I also have experience in novel Computer Vision techniques, particularly in deep feature extraction and detection.

Projects

PeerPull

peerpull.com

Digital co-working space where entrepreneurs, freelancers and digital creators gather and help each other

Peerpull is a platform for entrepreneurs and digital makers to connect. You can connect with people that have gone through similar doubts or issues by simply creating a room and joining at the scheduled time. You can also interact with others by joining the rooms other peers create.

Development of feature-based smart virtual sensors

http://bitly.ws/cpnV

CS Master thesis

This thesis proposes an application of convolutional feature points as smart virtual sensors. The feature descriptors are formed using the feature maps of one of the layers of a VGG-16 network pre-trained on Imagenet.From the extracted and matched features, information is obtained from each of them to create a data-set that describes the sequence of frames under consideration.

Stack used: Python PyTorch

LoopAround

Landing page for a project of Damage Detection as a Service

Whilst working in Looparound we applied some of the newest techniques in Computer Vision as well as learning how to properly construct an efiicient rapid deployment pipeline.

Bachelor thesis

During my bachelor thesis, I developed a computer vision-based system in which, throgugh a camera attached to a mobile robot that focuses on the roof, the system is able to describe the movememnt and relative poisition of the device.

Stack used: MATLAB ROS

Connecting teams via curated virtual activities

Onsite.fun offers the best team-building online activities. They have been carefuly curated so you don’t have to waste time wondering if they are suitable for remote teams.

At CYBERCRYPT, I took part in consultancy projects in data protection and in the development of the company’s first MVP.

Developer of a C library capable of encrypting and decrypting data with the best security standards collaborating with expert cryptographers. Developer of a REST API in Flask capable of encrypting and decrypting on demand. Tested and deployed multiple cloud solutions such as on AWS and GCloud together with some of the best practices of web servers.

Education

Technical University of Denmark - DTU

MSc Computer Science

2018 - 2020

Established in 1829 at the initiative of Hans Christian Ørsted as Denmark's first polytechnic, and is today ranked among Europe's leading engineering institutions.

During my time at DTU I learnt most of my key skills that have I have taken through my career such as teamwork and working to tight deadlines. I thouroughly enjoyed my time as university and learnt a lot about a healthy work life balance.

During my time there I did an exchange program with Aalborg University

Established in 1971 is the largest engineering university in Catalonia. UPC is consistently ranked as one of the leading European universities in the technology and engineering fields.

During my time at UPC I gained knowledge regarding the low level electronics in all current computer systems.

During my time there I did an exchange program with university HAW Hamburg

Polytechnic University of Catalonia - UPC BarcelonaTech -

BSc Industrial Electronics and Automation Engineering.

2014 - 2018
