I am interested in perception and learning to enable legged robots to be deployed in real-world situations. I have investigated problems such as state estimation, localization, whole-body planning and manipulation for legged robots in a wide range of applications including disaster response, healthcare and industrial inspection.
I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Edinburgh researching visual-haptic perception systems for manipulation. I did my PhD at the University of Oxford in the Dynamic Robot Systems Lab with Prof. Maurice Fallon. My thesis was on proprioceptive state estimation and localization for legged robots.
I received my MSc. in Robotics, Systems and Control from ETH Zürich. My Master’s thesis was done in collaboration with the CSIRO Data61 Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group in Brisbane, Australia. I also worked as a research engineer at the Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zürich as a member of the winning Team CERBERUS in the DARPA Subterranean Challenge.
I received my BEng. Honours in Electrical Engineering in 2016 from McGill University in my home city of Montréal, Canada.
