Currently I am a Ph.D. student enrolled in a joint doctorate between École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, in the Distributed Intelligent Systems and Algorithms Laboratory, and Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, in the Intelligent Robots and Systems group, where my co-advisor is Professor Pedro U. Lima. I received M.Eng degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Sheffield, UK, in 2014, with part of my studies spent at the University of Texas at Austin.
Research Interests and Projects
My research interests include formation control, cooperative perception and swarm robotics. Currently I work on institution-based models for behavior planing and execution in the context of multi-robot systems. I participated in the European FP7 MOnarCH (Multi-Robot Cognitive Systems Operating in Hospitals) project in years 2014-2016 and conducted research under SURE initiative with the Natural Robotics Lab, University of Sheffield in 2012. More information about my research can be found here.
Teaching and Service Activities
I have served as head TA and TA in the Signals, Instruments, and Systems (SIS), and Distributed Intelligent Systems (DIS) courses at DISAL since 2015. I supervised projects on formation control, human-robot collaboration and normative multi-robot behaviours. More information about these projects can be found here. I have also been extensively involved in the review process of robotics journals and conferences since 2015.
