I'm senior scientist at the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at ETH Zurich. I lead the Perception, Mapping and Navigation team at the Robotics Systems Lab. I'm also the managing director and responsible for education in the ETH RobotX initiative. Previously, I was a Senior Researcher with the Autonomous Systems Lab, also at ETH Zurich, and before at the School of Computer Science of The University of Adelaide, and a Postdoc at CS Department of George Mason University. I got my PhD in the Department of Computer Science and System Engineering at the University of Zaragoza.

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. I have a focus on developing robust, modular, and introspective perception systems.
