Dr. Jose San Pedro Wandelmer is an associate Researcher at Telefonica R&D. He joined in February 2011 supported by a European Marie Curie IOF grant. He is currently a Visiting Scholar at the College of Information Science and Technology (Penn State University) as part of his agreement with the European Commission.


His current work is framed within the MIESON research project: Multimedia information extraction from Online Social Networks. In such networks, millions of users from around the world act independently to generate online data and annotations which convey rich insights, especially given their multicultural nature. The main objective of project MIESON is to research methodologies and develop applications to leverage contextual information from large-scale collaborative datasets aiming at improving access to multimedia information. The project will focus on investigating methods for enhancing descriptions, search & ranking, and retrieval user experience.


Dr. San Pedro has worked as a postdoc fellow in the Information Retrieval Group at The University of Sheffield. Prior to that, Dr. San Pedro received his Ph.D. from the Computer Vision Group of UPM-DISAM (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid) studying different aspects of Visual Information Management Systems, including video analysis & processing, digital rights management, and efficient media processing computation.
