Office Hours:
Tuesday and Thursday 1-2 PM

I'm an Assistant Professor at UGA Department of Computer Science, with a focus on Robotics.

Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at Purdue University, working with Prof. Byung-Cheol Minof SMART Lab on projects relevant to Networked Robotics and Assistive Technologies. 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).
