Mr. Massanes was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1986. In 2005 he was accepted at the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CFIS) at UPC-Barcelona Tech, Spain, to pursue simultaneous degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics. In 2008 he was awarded with a scholarship from the Agency for Administration of University and Research to work in the department of Languages and Computer Systems (LSI). In January 2009, he joined the department of Computer Architecture as a student collaborator. In June 2009, he finished his 5-years degree in Mathematics at UPC-Barcelona Tech. In June 2010, he finished his 5-years degree in Computer Science at UPC- Barcelona Tech with the Final Thesis titled: Emulation of Human Motion Perception. He was a fellow for post-graduate studies from "La Caixa", Barcelona, Spain from 2010 until 2012. In May 2011, he graduated with honors from the M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology with the thesis: "Numerical observer for motion quality assessment.". Nowadays he is a PhD candidate in the Electrical Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
