I am Research Affiliate in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision since September 2016.
I was Senior Research Associate at School of Computer Science of
The University of Adeladie from Nov-2013 to Dic-2015.
was Posdoctoral Research Fellow at Computer Science Department of
George Mason University from Jul-2012 to Sep-2013.
got my PhD
in the Department of Computer Science
and System Engineering at
the University of Zaragoza in Nov-2011. Before, I got a Master in
Computer Science at the
same university in the Robotics area in 2009.
studied my bachelors in Mechanical Engineering, first in my promotion,
in Electronic Engineering at the University of Los Andes (UniAndes),
from 1999 to 2005. Later, I got my Master degree in Engineering at the
same university in the Control Systems area in 2006.
Below are some things in which I have been involved and others
that I have achieved:
- I have done a research stay in the Computer Science and
Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) of the Massachusetts
Intitute of Technology (MIT) under supervision of John Leonard
Robotics Group, from april to july 2010.
I have done a research stay in the Australian Center for Field Robotics
(ACFR) of the University of Sydney under supervision of
Fabio Ramos in
the Learning and Reasoning Group from october 2008 to january 2009.
- I have attended the SLAM Summer School in Sydney,
Australia, in 2009.
- I have attended the Bayesian Cognition Winter School in
Chamonix, France, in 2008.
2007 the Ministry of Science and Education of Spain
awarded me a scholarship FPI to study my PhD.
2006 and 2007 I was a professor in Department of Electrical and
Electronical Engineering of UniAndes. I taught courses of
Control Systems and of Circuits Analysis.
2006, I got the maximum score in my thesis of the Master in
Engineering by the Department of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering of UniAndes.
2003, I was in the top 10 mechanical engineering students in
Colombia, according to the Review of State of Quality in Higher
Education, Ministry of Education of Colombia. Also, my thesis
in Mechanical Engineering was awarded with special mention by
the Department of Mechanical Engineering of UniAndes and its Alumni
