I am an Associate Professor of Artificial Intelligence in the Computer Science Department of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). In 1996, I received my PhD degree at the UAB for my work on texture analysis and representation. I am an affiliate researcher at the Computer Vision Centre, where I lead the Colour in Context group researching on computational models of colour perception. My research is done from a multidisciplinary point of view combining the basic techniques of computer vision with psychophysical experimentation. Main research interests have been in colour naming, induction, texture and segmentation and recently focusing on saliency, constancy and cue combination. I teach some courses on artificial intelligence and coordinate the Master in Computer Vision of the UAB. I am also an active member of the Spanish association of IAPR.
