Currently, I'm senior researcher at the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at ETH Zurich, working with the Autonomous Systems Lab. lead by Roland Siegwart. I'm also a research affiliate in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision. Previously, I was a Senior Researcher at School of Computer Science of The University of Adelaide, working with Ian Reid, and a Postdoc at CS Department of George Mason University, working with Jana Kosecka.
    My main research interest lies in the interception of perception and learning in robotics. I am particularly interested on how to provide machines the capability of understanding this ever changing world through the sensory information they can gather. I have work intensively on Robotic Scene Understanding, both geometry and semantics, covering Semantic Mapping, Data Association and Place Recognition tasks, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping problems, as well as persistent mapping in dynamic environments.
