[15 Feb 2021] Lectures during second semester of course 20/21
A new semester starts, and this time I’ll be back to teaching some courses.
At Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, I’ll be teaching lab sessions of Interaction and Interface Design course and the theory sessions of Scalable Rendering for Graphics and Game Engines.
At Universitat de Girona, I’ll teach lab sessions of Metodologia i tecnologia de la programació II.
[06 Oct 2020] Some of my photographs featured in a book!
About a year ago, I was asked if I wanted to contribute with some of my pictures of Catalan mountains for an upcoming guidebook, which has been released this week: 100 cims: 50 excursions escollides (in Catalan, you can click on the PDF icon on the left column to see a sample). It describes hiking routes to 50 of the most iconical mountains in Catalunya, each one featuring a full-page photograph - of which 17 are mine!
[07 Sep 2020] Glaciers paper accepted at SIGGRAPH Asia 2020
Our paper “Simulation, Modeling and Authoring of Glaciers” has been accepted at SIGGRAPH Asia 2020. You can find the PDF, video and code repository in the Research menu. As many other conferences this year, the presentation will be online. See you (virtually) soon!
[31 Aug 2020] Summer updates
As long distance trips and expeditions were not an option this year, we’ve been enjoying our alpine backyard and summited many impressive peaks, some of which I’ve added in the Mountains pictures.
I’ve also added a new side project in which I’ve been collaborating during the past weeks: map-checking and listing all the world peaks with at least 1000m of prominence.
More updates coming soon…
[20 Apr 2020] Peakbagger app now in Spanish
Peakbagger is a website with a large database of metrics and information about many peaks of the world, and contains hundreds of peak lists for different criteria: region high points, most prominent, most isolated, club lists…
I’ve recently contributed with the Spanish translation of the Peakbagger app, made by Andrew Kirmse. You can check it out, it’s free and already available in English, French, Spanish or Slovenian.
[05 Feb 2020] Eurographics 2020
We’ve been invited to present the CGF paper “Image-based Tree Variations” at Eurographics this year. I’ll be attending the conference and presenting it. See you in Sweden the last week of May!
[07 Nov 2019] I'm online!
It was about time I created my personal webpage, so here it is, finally. My list of research articles - I’ll upload all the PDF soon -, some fun projects I’ve (co)developed, and beautiful mountains I’ve climbed. All in one place. There’s even an Easter egg, good luck finding it! :)
[06 Sep 2019] Orometry paper accepted at SIGGRAPH Asia 2019
Our paper “Orometry-based terrain analysis and synthesis” has been accepted at SIGGRAPH Asia. I’ll be presenting it on November 19 in Brisbane, Australia.
[03 Sep 2018] Postdoc in France
I’ve started a postdoctoral position in Lyon (France). I’ll be working on the modelling of virtual worlds as a member of the GEOMOD team of the LIRIS lab.
[19 Jul 2018] Thesis defended!
I’ve defended my PhD thesis, entitled “Realistic reconstruction and rendering of detailed 3D scenarios from multiple data sources”, at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. My advisors have been Carlos Andujar and Antoni Chica. The jury was formed by Antoni Susín (UPC), Miguel Chover (Universitat Jaume I) and Pierre Poulin (Université de Montreal).
