MauriceLecturer (Assistant Professor) in Robotics and Computer Vision

My research is focused on probabilistic methods for localization, state estimation and mapping for robots and autonomous systems. I am also interested in high dimensional motion planning and manipulation for humanoid robots.

I am Principal Investigator of the Robot Perception Group where you will find more detailed information about our research.
