CiTIUS | USC

BIOGRAPHY

I studied BS Computer Engineering (2010) and Master's Degree in Information Technologies Research (2011) at the University of Santiago de Compostela. Now I am a PhD student in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the Centro de Investigación en Tecnoloxías da Información (CiTIUS), in the same institution, and supported by the FPU national plan of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports. My current research interests are: navigation in mobile robotics, motion planning, adaptative control and machine learning.
