Welcome to my homepage!
I'm an Assistant Professor at University of Georgia (UGA) Department of Computer Science, with a focus on Robotics. I'll soon update on my new lab information.
Before that, I was working as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Robotics Perception and Learning (RPL) lab (previously Computer Vision and Active Perception lab) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden with Prof. Petter Ogren. At KTH, I was involved in two European projects under EU-FP7 grants, TRADR and RECONFIG.
For my doctoral research, I worked at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), Switzerland, conducting research in mobile robotics and received my Ph.D. (Robotics and Automation) from Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain in Oct 2014. My Ph.D. thesis titled "Wireless communication enhancement methods for mobile robots in radiation environments" was on teleoperated mobile robots for radiation survey applications at CERN. I was part of the EU-ITN project PURESAFE as a Marie-Curie Early State Researcher. I had developed tools for optimizing and predicting wireless communication in mobile robots applied in hostile environmental conditions. While at CERN, I also led a part of the Robotic Train project (TIM - Train Inspection Monorail) for conducting radiation inspections at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).For full list of publication click here
Heterogeneous Robotics (HeRo) Research Lab
I'm setting up a new Collaborative Heterogeneous Robotics (Co-HeRo) research lab at UGA. I'll update soon on the lab website and information.
I am looking for highly motivated graduate students with research interests in Robotics and Control/Communications. I have funding for two Ph.D. positions. Please send me an email if you are interested in working with me!
