I received my PhD at the Institut de Robotica i Informatica Industrial (IRI) under the supervision of Prof. Juan Andrade-Cetto and Prof. Joan SolĂ  within the Mobile robotics group.

I have worked in the Cargo Ants FP7 european project, the Logimatic H2020 european project and the GAUSS H2020 european project among others.

My research interests include simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), mobile robot exploration and graph SLAM sparsification.
