Guillermo Garcia-Hernando

Ph.D. student, Imperial College London

I am a fourth year Ph.D student at the Imperial Computer Vision and Learning Lab (ICVL), Imperial College London, advised by Dr. Tae-Kyun Kim. My research studies computer vision and machine learning, more specifically the recognition of human actions in videos and active vision problems using (deep) reinforcement learning.

In the past, I did my master studies at Télécom ParisTech (France, 2013) and my undergraduate studies at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) - BarcelonaTech (Spain, 2011).
