I'm a PhD candidate at the Systems Engineering program at the University of California at Berkeley . My adviser is Prof. Raja Sengupta.
I'm an officer of the Portuguese Air Force (holding the rank of Captain) affiliated with the Portuguese Air Force Academy where I'm a researcher in the area of mobile robotics and a lecturer in the area of Telecommunications and Avionic Systems.
My dissertation work focuses on models and languages for Cyber-Physical Systems embedded in dynamic spatial environments.
I'm interested on aggregates of mobile agents that can react upon structural changes of the environment and manipulate it to meet a given goal.
These agents can specify computation running over a wide range of devices such as mobile robots or people navigating with smartphones.
The main premise is that they are mobile and interactive.
As a roboticist, my work focuses on domain-specific languages (DSL) for specifying collaborative missions of mobile robots performing a wide-range of missions such as maritime surveillance, environmental sensing, and tracking of oceanic features.
See the Videos section for some samples of unmanned vehicle missions.
I'm currently involved in the following research projects (see videos and research sections for details):
Research interests: Cyber-Physical Systems, mobile robotics, models of computation, semantics, domain-specific languages, collaborative control.
