About me

I am Manel Baradad Jurjo, last-year PhD student at MIT under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Torralba. I currently work in representation learning and 3D scene understanding, but I am also interested in computational photography and graphics. Before coming to MIT, I did my undergrad at CFIS-UPC, where I was fortunate to work in the Image Processing Group under the supervision of Prof. Xavier Giró-i-Nieto.

I'm looking for full-time industry opportunities starting June-September 2024. You can contact me at: mbaradad at mit dot edu.
