Research interests

I am a Early-Career research fellow (Leverhulme Trust) working on design and development of innovative concepts for vision systems. These combine computational imaging, image processing, system modelling and optical design, aiming at incorporating these new techniques into current imaging technology to realise otherwise impossible performance. My research areas of interest include:

  • Computational imaging in microscopy
  • Computational macroscopic vision
  • Monte-Carlo modelling of photon transport in imaged turbid media
  • Computational imaging in the eye.

I have proposed and developed within the ICG group at Glasgow, a snapshot 3D imaging technique known as Complementary Kernel Matching (CKM), which enables to extend the depth-of-field of a microscope by a factor of ten and reconstruct 3D topographic images that are captured in a single snapshot.

I have worked on the design and development of an oximetric handheld ophthalmoscope for imaging the retina of premature infants, in which computational imaging is exploited to record high-quality images of a wide field-of-view of the retina.

Other past and active research areas include:

  • Monte-Carlo modelling of imaging systems involving turbid media, tracking light from source to detector, and developed and add-on software to the optical-design software Zemax able to track polarisation of photon packets in scattering scenarios.
  • Enhancement of image contrast in ultrawide-field Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopes.
  • Design of compact imaging devices through multi-aperture imaging and super-resolution image reconstruction.
  • Enhanced sampling strategies for extension of the field-of-view of vision systems.
  • Modelling and implementation of Wavefront Coding imaging systems.

I obtained a BSc in Physics in 2005 at University of Barcelona. I worked on thermal simulation and modelling of microsystems using the finite-element method at the Department of Electronics at the same University. Then I focused my research interests into optics and imaging systems, and I obtained a MSc in Physics Engineering in 2007, and I completed a PhD in Physics at the University of Barcelona in 2011, working on design and implementation of Wavefront Coding techniques. I obtained a MSc in Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence at the University Autonoma of Barcelona in 2012, before moving to Glasgow.
