He was an academic visitor at the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing, China) in December 2015 and June 2016.

His current research interests (http://bit.ly/2n7ztpR) are in the areas of visual sensor networks and performance evaluation of computer vision, with a strong focus on generative modeling, domain adaptation and graph neural networks. He has co-authored over 60 papers in JCR-indexed international journals and conferences, and two book chapters. He has recognized 2 six-year research period (sexenios, last 2014-2019) by the Spanish government agency "Comisión Nacional Evaluadora de la Actividad Investigadora (CNEAI)".

He has participated as a lecturer in the summer school for video surveillance at UAM (editions 2008 and 2010) and training courses for the Spanish law enforcement agency (Guardia Civil) in 2013-2015. He has given invited talks at the X Conference on Science and Technology ESPE 2015 (Quito, Ecuador), the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2015 and 2016 (Beijing, China). He has also given tutorials in major international conferences: FUSION 2016 (Heidelberg, Germany) and IEEE ICIP 2017 (Beijing, China).

He also received two awards in 2013 for the Best PhD thesis in multimedia (runner up) (Electrical engineering Spanish association) and in 2014 for the best PhD thesis (School of Electrical engineering, UAM).
He also serves as a regular reviewer for several international journals (IEEE TIP, IEEE CSVT, IEEE TSP, Elsevier IMAVIS, ESWA, CVIU, Springer JRTIP, MVAP, MTAP,…) and international conferences (IEEE ICIP, IEEE WACV, IEEE AVSS, ACM Multimedia…).
