About me

 About me      Personal info

 

 

 

I received a PhD in Computer Science for my work on feature selection and machine learning in 2014 at the University of A Coruña. After a postdoctoral fellowship (2015) at the University of Manchester (UK), working with Dr. Gavin Brown, I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of A Coruña. My main research interests include machine learning, pattern recognition, feature selection and medical imaging.
