** News: We have just created a new research group: The Mad (Math and Data) group , with the focus to work on the mathematical and statistical foundations of High-dimensional Data Analysis and Machine Learning. **

I am an Assistant Professor at Courant Institute, NYU, in the Department of Computer Science, Department of Mathematics (affiliated) and the Center for Data Science, since Fall 2016. I am currently on leave from UC Berkeley (Statistics Department).

My research interests touch several areas of Machine Learning, Signal Processing and High-Dimensional Statistics. In particular, in the past few years I have been working on Deep Convolutional Networks, studying some of its theoretical properties and applications to several Computer Vision tasks.

Before that, I worked at FAIR (Facebook AI Research) in New York, working on Unsupervised Learning. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Courant Institute, NYU, under the supervision of Prof. Yann Lecun.

I completed my PhD in 2013 at Ecole Polytechnique, France, under the supervision of Prof. Stephane Mallat. Before my PhD I was a Research Engineer at a semi-conductor company, developing real-time video processing algorithms. Even before that, I did a MsC at Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan in Applied Mathematics (MVA) and my undergrad at UPC (Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Barcelona) in both Mathematics and Telecommunication Engineering.
