VICOROB adds three new professorships
Since the beginning of December VICOROB has three more professors in the group: Prof. Pere Ridao, Prof. Jordi Freixenet and Prof. Joan Martí. All three defended with brilliant presentations their opposition as full professors in the Computer Architecture and Technology Area of the Computer Architecture and Technology Department of the University of Girona.
The defenses took place on December 1st and 5th. In the different sessions, each of them explained their trajectory in management, teaching and research that have led them to obtain the position of professors.
Dr. Pere Ridao defended his research project on Underwater Robotics and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles, while Dr. Jordi Freixenet focused on the field of Machine and Creative Learning and Dr. Joan Martí on Computer Vision techniques in the diagnosis of breast cancer.
This recognition reaffirms the great teaching and research work done over the years and the leadership provided in their labs.
