Diego Peluffo, Ph.D.

Short Bio

He was born in Pasto – Colombia in 1986. He received his degree in electronic engineering, the M.Eng. and PhD degree in industrial automation from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Manizales – Colombia, in 2008, 2010 and 2013, respectively. He undertook his doctoral internship at KU Leuven – Belgium.Afterwards, he worked as a post-doc at Université Catholique de Louvain at Louvain la-Neuve, Belgium. In 2014, he worked as an assistant teacher at Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia – Pasto. From 2015 to 2017, he worked  as a researcher/professor at Universidad Técnica del Norte – Ecuador. Currently, he is working as a researcher/professor at Yachay Tech – Ecuador. He is supervisor and external member of ALEPHSYS (Algorithms embedded in Physical Systems) research group from Universitat Rovira i Virgila – Spain. He is
invited lecturer at Universidad de Nariño – Colombia and Corporación Universitaria Autónoma de Nariño – Colombia. He is the head of the SDAS research group.

Summary of Interests

His research interest are: i) time-varying data analysis using unsupervised, spectral and kernel techniques aimed at tracking and automatic motion segmentation, ii) complex-structure data analysis using spectral representation and clustering approaches, iii) multi-labeler learning, iv) interactive data visualization
