Research lines

My current research interests target the statistical analysis of cardiac function (2D/3D motion and deformation patterns, among other descriptors), for the understanding of disease apparition and evolution, and, to a certain extent, computer-aided diagnosis. My focus is both on features extraction and pre-processing (speckle-tracking, image registration, and spatiotemporal alignment techniques such as statistical atlases), and on their post-processing through pattern analysis and representation learning techniques.

On the clinical side, my work has special dedication to the fields of echocardiography, resynchronization therapy (CRT) and heart failure.
