I graduated in May 2013 and defended my thesis  "Characterization of Probabilistic Volumetric Models for 3-d Computer Vision"  under the guidance of Dr. Joseph Mundy. See abstract and thesis files. During my Ph.D my focus was in the areas of 3d reconstruction, recognition, registration and feature detection. While at Brown, I received a M.S degree in Applied Mathematics, with course-work focused on probability theory.  I received my B.S degree with honors in Electrical Engineering from Trinity College, where I was also part of the squash varsity team. I was born and raised in the city of the eternal spring, Medellin, Colombia.

April 2013: I have successfully defended my Ph.D thesis. I am now Dr. Isa :). Here are the abstract and thesis files.

February 2013: I will be defending my Ph.D thesis entitled "Characterization of Probabilistic Volumetric Models for 3-d Computer Vision" on April 19, 2013. Thesis committee: Dr. Joseph Mundy, Dr. Gabriel Taubin, Dr. Pedro Felzenszwalb and Dr. Radu Rusu. Looking forward to it!  

September, 2012: Our paper "High Resolution Surface Reconstruction from Multi-View Aerial Imagery" has been accepted at 3DIMPVT! I will try to update the related project page soon.

July 9, 2012: Our paper "An Evaluation of Local Descriptors for Object Charegorization in Probabilistic Volumetric Scenes" has been accepted at BMVC.

June 7, 2012: A preprint of our paper entitled "Characterization of 3-d Volumetric Probabilistic Scenes for Object Recognition" is now available a IEEEXplore. See related publication for a link to PDF.

Feb 13, 2012: I recently presented my paper entitled "Object Recognition in Probabilistic 3-d Volumetric Scenes" in ICPRAM 2012. The conference was in the beautiful Algarve region in Portugal. See related project for a link to slides and paper.
