Point cloud processing; Laser scanning; Urban environments; Point cloud occlusions; Machine Learning and Deep Learning.


I am researcher in the Applied Geotechnologies Research Group from the University of Vigo (Spain), where I have finished my PhD focused on automatic point cloud processing for physical accessibility diagnosis and pedestrian pathfinding. I am currently on a one-year research stay at Delft University of Technology, in Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment under the supervision of Peter Van Oosterom. My current research focuses on point cloud occlusions and Deep Learning techniques to point clouds. I have also conducted studies in fields of land and object classification, Petri Nets modelling, thermography and autonomous driving.

I have needed to expand my background in Bachelor’s Degree in Automatic and Electronic Engineering and Master Degree in Geoinformatics, acquiring knowledge in: data mining, Matlab and Python programming, graph theory, mathematical morphology, computational geometry, image processing, Machine Learning and Deep Learning.

I have done research stays in Institute of Measurement and Control with Machine Laboratory (MRT), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, 2017; Intelligent Data Systems (IDS), University do Minho, Portugal, 2018, Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support (LIAAD), INECSTEC, University of Porto, Portugal, 2019.


According to Google Scholar (on 30 April 2020) he has co-authored 21 publications, has 151 citations and an h-index of 7.
