I am a Ph.D. student at the Robotics and Perception Group led by Prof. Davide Scaramuzza since January 2016. Currently, I am working on multi-agent SLAM and place recognition. I received my Bachelor's and my Master's degree in Microengineering from EPFL in 2012 and 2014, respectively. During my Bachelor's degree, I spent an exchange year at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA. I did my Master Thesis at the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH Zurich, where I spent one year as research assistant afterwards.

Research Interests

Multi-agent SLAM

I am interested in how multiple robots can collaboratively build a map in an unknown 3d environment. In particular, my research is on how this can be achieved in a decentralized manner.

Place Recognition

Place Recognition is an essential part of multi-agent SLAM. It allows the different robots involved in multi-agent SLAM to localize themselves with respect to the maps created by the other robots, thus enabling multi-robot loop closure, and the creation of a globally consistent map. Beside its use in multi-agent SLAM, I am interested in making visual place recognition robust to changes in appearance.
