My name is Victor R Martinez. I am Machine Engineer at Apple.

Before joining Apple, I received my PhD in Computer Science from University of Southern California (USC) Viterbi School of Engineering under the wonderful supervision of Prof. Shri Narayanan at the Signal Analysis and Interpretation Lab. I worked on computational models that understand portrayals of characters in a story. These models could automatically quantify characters representations, shed light into possible unconscious biases, and determine the possible impact that these narratives might have in our lives and the lives of others. While at USC, I also helped develop PyKaldi—a fast and modular scripting layer for Kaldi.

Even before that, I received my MSc in Computer Science from ITAM.
