I'm broadly interested in computer vision and learning. I develop models that extract high-level information of the world to assist robots and automated systems such as self-driving cars and drones.

DE CURTÒ I DÍAZ Joaquim de Tots els Sants. From Catalunya (Regne d'Espanya); currently in Hong Kong. Happily married to De Zarzà i Cubero. A tribute to some of my family, ancestors and mentors: De Curtò i Bel (my father): passionate about cars, mechanics and painting. Bel i Bosch (my grandma): she knew beforehand I was the chosen one. Supported my education and all my ventures, she truly believed in me. Masterson (my teacher of English from age 7 until 17, and onwards a real supporter and a second mother): from Edinburgh (Scotland). She has taught me how to be a good Briton.
