Josep Ramon Morros


Josep Ramon Morros Rubió received a degree in Physics from the Universitat de Barcelona (UB), Barcelona, Spain, in 1989. He received the Ph.D. from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC)in 2004.

In 1989 he made a short stay at the Research Institute for Technical Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, in the Division of Semiconductor Microwave Devices, in Budapest, Hungary.

From 1989 to 1990 he worked at Mediterrània d'Enginyeria as a programmer and computer network administrator. From 1991 to 1993 he worked at Instrumentación Electrónica PROMAX, as responsable of the technical documentation department.

From October 1994 to February 1997 he was teaching telecommunications at the UPC. In February 1997, he joined the Escola Universitària Politècnica de Mataró EUPMT, Mataró, Spain, where he teached electronics and computer science until June 2001. He also gave courses on PC Hardware at SC2 Formació during several years.

In 2003 he joined the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya where he is currently Associate Professor. He is lecturing in the areas of communications, signal processing, digital image processing and computer vision. His current research interests include image and sequence coding, segmentation problems and video sequence analysiss, with application in fields like urban mobility or agriculture.

Since 1994 he has been involved in various European Projects (MAVT, MoMuSys, SIMILAR, CHIL, FascinatE ...) as a researcher from the Image and Video Processing Group at the UPC.
