Javier Romero received his M.Sc. from the Technical University of Madrid (2007) and his Ph.D. from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (2011) under the supervision of Danica Kragic and Hedvig Kjellström. After post-doctoral research in the Perceiving Systems department of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, he became a Research Scientist in the same department in 2013.
His research interest lies at the intersection between computer vision and graphics, where realistic geometrical models are computed from real data and used for understanding such data. He focuses on the perception of human bodies due to their interesting shape properties and the broad impact of their related applications.
