And now, what's going to happen to us without barbarians?
They were, those people, a kind of solution.

  • I am working in the field of perception and learning for robotics, and in particular, I am developing new estimation and planning algorithms for articulated robots that locomote and manipulate in uncertain natural environment. I am focused on developing new theoretical results on sensing, real-time map building, and self/environment modeling of surface contact areas which include statistical models of uncertainty, for the purpose of articulated locomotion on very uneven 3D terrain, using SLAM and perception systems, as well as manipulation methods for structured and free-formed objects.
