Personal Information

I received a PhD in image Processing at the Center of Mathematical Morphology of Mines-ParisTech. My thesis subject is based on assistance of urban modeling(large - scale and building modeling) and under the supervision of Beatriz Marcotegui.

I received a degree in Electronic Engineering from National University of Colombia, in 2004, with a Memory Thesis on reconfigurable hardware (FPGA) and image processing. I worked under the supervision of Flavio Prieto.


Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Terranumerica My thesis research was developed in the framework of Cap Digital Business Cluster TerraNumerica project. This project aims to develop a production and exploitation platform, by allowing the definition and visualization of synthetic urban environments. The platform aims to increase the productivity and the realism of urban modeling.
