Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering,
I'm currently a graduate student at the
Statistical Visual Computing Lab,
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
at University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
I've received a Licenciatura (5 years degree) in Computation and Systems Engineering from
Faculdade de Engenharia
da Universidade do Porto in 2000, and a M.A. in Computational Methods in Science
and Engineering from a joint-venture of
Faculdade de Ciencias
and Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto in 2003.
My current research is focused on image retrieval and annotation.
I'm exploring contextual relations for image annotation.
Context can mean several things; I've been using auxiliary sources
of information for context extraction that can be used on image regularization.
We argue that the use of text in image regularization is the natural thing to do
since in so many interesting applications (e.g. image retrieval) text segments
co-exist with images. The effectiveness of this regularization can be shown
in multiple datasets to produce more accurate image retrieval systems.
