IRIS, D-MAVT, ETH Zurich
I am SNF Assistant Professor leading the Vision for Robotics Lab at ETH Zurich, Switzerland and an Honorary Fellow of the University of Edinburgh in the UK. Previously, I was a Chancellor's Fellow and Lecturer at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, and before that, I was at the Autonomous Systems Lab (ASL) of ETH Zurich, where I held the post of Deputy Director, Senior Researcher and Lecturer between 2010-2013.
My research interest is in Computer Vision for Robotics, focusing on real-time perception for micro-aerial vehicles and I have had the pleasure of working with some brilliant students and researchers in this area, leading the scientific activities in the following European projects:
AEROWORKS, investigating the technologies to enable collaboration of multiple small aircraft equipt with manipulators for the purpose of
SHERPA, aiming at developing a robotic team to aid alpine search and rescue,
myCopter, researching the technologies necessary for automating personal aerial transportation,
I am teaching part of the Autonomous Mobile Robotics Masters course, while I am also supervising Masters and Bachelors projects.
