ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Dani. I studied Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Computer Engineering at Universidad de Zaragoza, and I’m (already?) a third year PhD student in the Graphics and Imaging Lab, under the supervision of Prof. Belen Masia and Prof. Diego Gutierrez.

My research interests span understanding and modeling user’s behavior in virtual reality, and I’m extremely interested in how deep learning techniques may help to get it. Nevertheless, I’m always looking forward to learning something new!

Good news! I'm the recipient of a PhD competitive grant from the Gobierno de Aragon (2020-2024).

HOBBIES

My main passion is training calisthenics. It is a form of strength training consisting of a variety of movements that are often performed with minimal equipment, as bodyweight exercises: From easy, simple pull-ups and push-ups, to harder (really, really harder) movements such as handstand, straddle planche or front lever. Training calisthenics allows me to free my mind and release tensions. Give it a try!

I also enjoy reading and watching films and series. I have no clear preference between different genres, but I the films I absolutely most enjoy are the catastrophic ones. "2012", "The day after tomorrow", "Geostorm"... Weird, isn't it?
