Caterina Fuster-Barceló

Who I am

I am a PhD Candidate in Computer Science and Technology working at the Computer Security Lab (COSEC) at Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M), Spain under the supervision of Dr. Pedro Peris and Dr. Carmen Cámara. I have a B.Sc. in Telematics Engineering in the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) and a M.Sc. in Cybersecurity for the UC3M. My area of expertise is biometric identification together with Deep Learning analysis. Consequently, my current work is focused in developing a biometrical identification method based on Electrocardiograms (ECG) and based on Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) as the classification method. In addition, I am also participating in Skype A Scientist.


My main interests are:

  • Biometric identification
  • Deep Learning
  • Computer Vision
  • Coffee with soy milk
