About

  • I am a PhD student in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems, part of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics. I am also a member of the HRI Lab at Heriot-Watt University. Previously, I was awarded an Electronics Engineering degree by the National University of Rosario (Argentina), and a European Masters in Vision and Robotics (VIBOT) jointly awarded by the University of Burgundy (France), the University of Girona (Spain) and Heriot-Watt University (UK). I carried out my Masters thesis in the Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour (IPAB) at the University of Edinburgh. I also hold a Masters in Robotics and Autonomous Systems awarded as part of my doctoral training.
  • My research interests span humanoid robots, artificial intelligence, machine learning (including deep learning), 3D perception, natural language understanding, visual servoing and cognitive systems. I am also interested in the application of these technologies with the aim of improving healthcare, wildlife protection and the preservation of the environment.
