resume

I am currently an Assistant Professor in Cognitive AI within the Artificial Cognitive Intelligence Group, the at Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. My current main research interests are Neuroscience-inspired AI, Robot Learning, Active Inference, Machine Learning, Body perception and Human-robot interaction.

Previously I was a Marie Sklodowska Curie Senior Fellow (EU H2020) at the Institute of Cognitive Systems (ICS) of the Technische Universität München, leaded by Prof. Gordon Cheng, working for my funded project: SELFCEPTION

I received the M.Sc. degree in computer sciences and the Ph.D. degree in computer engineering, specialization robotics (July 2013), on the subject "minimum time search of mobile targets in uncertain environments" from Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), Spain. In 2006 I joined the Department of Computer Architecture and Automatic Control, UCM, and as a PhD candidate, I have been a visiting researcher at the Aerospace Control Laboratory (ACL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology; the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (LIA), Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne; and the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR), University of Sydney. From 2012 to 2013 I have also been working as a researcher assistant in the optical department of the Physics faculty (UCM) developing machine learning algorithms for handwritten text recognition. I have been a member of the Spanish Government funded projects: "System for surveillance, search and rescue in the sea by means of the collaboration of autonomous marine and air vehicles" and "Planning, simulation and control platform for multiple aerial and marine vehicles cooperation".

Afterwards, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Artificial Perception team at the Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR) of the University of Coimbra under CASIR project: Coordinated Control of Stimulus-Driven and Goal-Directed Multisensory Attention within the Context of Social Interaction with Robots and advised by Prof. João Filipe Ferreira and Prof. Jorge Dias.

My current main research interests are: Neuroscience-inspired AI, Robot Learning, Active Inference, Machine Learning, Body perception and Human-robot interaction.
