I’m Raúl Gómez Bruballa and I was born in Altafulla and moved to Barcelona to study telecommunications engineering with an specialization in audiovisuals systems at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. After that I did a computer vision master at the Computer Vision Center (UAB), where I also did my PhD together with Eurecat, the Catalonia technological center, under an industrial PhD program. During my PhD I researched on diverse topics involving visual and textual data, focusing on learning from Web and Social Media data and on applied research. Those topics include multi-modal image retrieval, image tagging, multi-modal hate speech detection or scene text detection.
I’m interested in computer vision, deep learning and image processing, and I like to work on research and development projects that have a direct impact in our society. In this personal website I write about my scientific work, either publications, toy experiments or coding stuff.
