I am a M.Sc. student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto co-advised by Sanja Fidler and Raquel Urtasun. Previously I was a visiting student at MIT advised by Antonio Torralba, and I obtained B.Sc. degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from UPC BarcelonaTech, where I collaborated with LARCA.

I am interested in machine learning and its applications to computer vision and natural language processing. In particular, I am interested in understanding visual stories and learning in settings with weak supervision and cross-modal inputs.
