Biography (more>>)
I am a Robotics Research Technologist in 347T - Robotic Aerial Mobility group, at NASA-JPL.
I received the BSc degrees in T.Telecommunications and Industrial Management; and MSc and PhD in Automatic Control, Robotics and Computer Vision from the "Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya" (UPC), Barcelona, in 2004, 2012 and 2017 respectively.
I was finalist of the Georges Giralt PhD award for the best European thesis in robotics (2018) and I published a book, several other book chapters and top international journals and conferences.
I have experience in the private sector for more than 6 years.
Prior to my current position, I was a postdoctoral researcher with Ali Agha at NASA-JPL and at "Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial", CSIC-UPC, Barcelona.
My expertise thrives at the intersection between control and perception of mobile robots and my current research interests include state estimation, computer vision and controls, with special focus on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
