J. D. Curtó
I've had numerous research appointments, namely at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at CUHK with Irwin King and Michael R. Lyu and at Carnegie Mellon with Kris M. Kitani. As well as at the EE and CS Departments at City University of Hong Kong.
I was a doctoral student in the Laboratory of Computer Vision at ETH Zürich under the supervision of Luc van Gool and later on with John Lygeros. Previously I completed my master (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering at City University of Hong Kong, where I did an exchange at the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon. I developed my master thesis at the ML Dept. where I was advised by Alex Smola and Chong Wah Ngo. As part of the MS program, I also interned at the Robotics under Fernando de la Torre. At City University of Hong Kong, I received several awards: the Top Achiever 2015, MS Internship Sponsorship 2014 and MS Entrance Scholarship 2013/14.
Besides, during my time in Hong Kong I participated in the Program of Open Mentoring in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Hong Kong with Li-Yi Wei.
I hold a 5-year degree in Engineering of Telecommunication from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. I also worked as Research Scientist at CELLS ALBA Synchrotron under Eric Pellegrin. I had near perfect top nationwide scores in the university entrance examinations and baccalaureate.
