Jose Dolz was born in 1982 in Valencia (Spain). After school, he started studying a long cycle degree in Telecommunications and electrical engineering at Polytechnic University of Valencia, and he graduated in 2010. During his degree, he made his thesis at the Hogskolan I Gävle, in Sweeden, as a part of the european Erasmus program.
In 2010 he started to work as researcher in the Biomechanic Institue of Valencia (IBV), specializing in computer vision tasks applied to biomechanical problems. After one year, he moved to the private industry, where he played the role of head office in a young start-up (ARLab), which focused in augmented reality and computer vision applications.
In late 2012, he came back to the reseach field, as Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher in a french company (AQUILAB), as a part of the FP7 European project SUMMER ( Software for the Use of Multi-Modality images in External Radiotherapy). In addition, he started his PhD in 2013 at L'Ecole Doctorale Biologie et Santé de Lille, which focuses in the segmentation on MRI of the organs at risk in brain cancer. His PhD is supervised by Laurent Massoptier (Aquilab) and Maximilien Vermandel (INSERM Onco-Thai U1189).
After his Marie-Curie grant ended up, he stayed in Aquilab as Research engineer, where he was integrating his work in the products of the company. Just after he obtained his PhD, he moved to Montreal, Canada, where he currently works as post-doctoral researcher at the École de technologie supérieure (ETS) de Montréal.
