Esteban Mauricio Correa

Esteban Correa attended Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira in Colombia, where he majored as –cum laude– in Computer Science and Systems Engineering. Afterwards, he accomplished a research training in traffic analysis within the same university. The training was funded through a scholarship for young researchers from COLCIENCIAS, the Administrative Department of Science, Technology and Innovation of Colombia. He finished his studies with a master degree at the specific area of image processing at Université Lyon 1 in France. He was awarded a joint MSc. in Computer Engineering degree with Universidad de los Andes in Colombia. During his master studies, Esteban fulfilled a research internship at CREATIS, a Biomedical Imaging Research Center under the supervision of Prof. Maciej Orkisz. He also had complementary formation in Computer vision and Machine Learning (ENS/INRIA Visual Recognition and Machine Learning Summer School in Paris).
