I obtained the industrial engineering degree with specialization electronics in automatic regulation at the Escuela Politecnica Superior de Ingenieria de Gijon (Spain) in 2005. I completed the last two years of this degree with an Erasmus scholarship at the Technische Universität Berlin. In 2006 I worked as an intern at Peiker Acustic researching model-based speech enhancement. On this same year I was awarded with a La Caixa and German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) scholarship for research towards the Ph.D. degree. I obtained the title with distinction from the Technische Universität Berlin in 2010 in the fields of speech processing and robust automatic speech recognition. In my thesis "Integration of Short-Time Fourier Domain Speech Enhancement and Observation Uncertainty Techniques for Robust Automatic Speech Recognition" I formalized the concept of short-time Fourier uncertainty propagation and introduced various closed from solutions for it. I am currently a Post.-Doc. researcher here at INESC-ID/L2F researching both on robust speech recognition and robust natural language processing applications in a Bayesian setting. I am an ISCA member and reviewer of IEEE-TASLP/SPL as well as CSL. My interests span statistics, signal processing, machine learning and in general both human and machine perception of the environment.
