I am currently a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher at the Institute of Computer Science at the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) in Heraklion, Greece. My research is part of the Retinal Vascular Modelling, Measurement and Diagnosis (REVAMMAD) project, and it is focused on the detection and diagnosis of hypertension by automatic analysis of retinal images.

This project has led me to collaborate with diverse European institutions such as the Charite Medical University in Berlin, Germany, and to be visiting researcher at the Biomedical Imaging Lab of the University of Padova, Italy.

Simultaneously, I am pursuing a PhD in Cognitive Vision and Robotics at the University of Crete.

In the past I have worked as a Software Engineer in Scientific Games and as a Software Developer Engineer at Nokia Siemens Networks, both of them in Budapest, Hungary. My work experience also includes working at the Network Operation Center of Servicios Audiovisuales Overon, in Madrid, Spain, as well as more educational oriented positions at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden and the Technical University of Madrid.

I hold a Master of Science in Systems, Control and Robotics from the Royal Institute of Technology. I developed my thesis in 3D image segmentation using Kinect.

Previously, I studied a Bachelor Degree in Telecommunication Systems, majoring in Electronic Systems at the Technical University of Madrid (UPM), in Spain. I developed my bachelor thesis at the Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Karlskrona, Sweden.

I have also taken courses in robotics, bioenergy and other related topics in universities such as the Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan; the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Slovakia; and at the Istanbul Technical University, in Turkey.
