Brief CV

BSc in Mathematics (2010) by the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB), MSc in Advanced Mathematics and Mathematical Engineering (2011) by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, and PhD in Mathematics (2016) by UIB with a thesis on variational models for ill-posed inverse problems in digital imaging. From 2011 to 2015, he had a fellowship of the Govern de les Illes Balears for the realization of his PhD thesis. Since 2015, he has been a member of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at UIB, currently as an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics.

He is a member of the Mathematical Image Processing (TAMI) research group and of the Institute of Applied Computing and Community Code (IAC3). His main research interests currently include nonlinear analysis, calculus of variations, partial differential equations, convex optimization, and deep unfolding architectures, with applications in image processing and computer vision. He has participated in several research projects, leading two of them, an has collaborated with the National Centre for Space Studies (CNES) in France and with the Oceanographic Centre of the Balearic Islands, among others. As a result of his research, he has published several papers in journals indexed in JCR and has participated in several international conferences.

He has been a visiting researcher in the groups led by Prof. Daniel Cremers at the Technical University of Munich, Prof. Jean-Michel Morel at the Centre de Mathématiques et Leurs Applications at ENS Paris-Saclay, and Prof. Joan Bruna at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Data Science at New York University.

He has taught in the BSc in Mathematics and Computer Engineering at the Higher Polytechnic School, and in the degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Faculty of Science. He has also taught mathematical models for the restoration of digital images in the MSc in Advanced Physics and Applied Mathematics.

From July 2021, he is deputy director of the Higher Polytechnic School and head of studies of the Degree in Mathematics.
