I am a Research Scientist at HRL Laboratories. My interests lie in the fascinating interception of robotics, artificial intelligence, and humans. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Central Florida, under the guidance of Dr. Yaser P. Fallah (UCF), where I focused on the autonomous driving problem from a cooperative and multi-agent point of view. Prior to that, I obtained my M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Sao Paulo (USP) and my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Technological University Jose Antonio Echeverria. Throughout my journey, I’ve had the privilege to collaborate with exceptional individuals, each of whom I deeply cherish and am immensely grateful for.

I’m deeply passionate about building robots that seamlessly integrate into our daily lives, simplifying and enriching human experiences. On a personal note, I have broad interests spanning science and technology in general, history, the joy of reading, running, intriguing puzzles, and human endeavors.

Current Research Project:

We study the autonomous driving problem as a single agent and as a multiagent problem from a cooperative point of view in the presence of humans.

We tackle the problem of autonomous driving in complex & competitive mixed-autonomy environments where autonomous vehicles interact with vehicles driven by humans.
