I am completing a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Robotics at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia, advised by Prof. Michael Milford.
Previously I received a B.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering (1st in my class) from UNI and an M.Sc. in Mechatronics Systems from PUC-Rio. I also worked in the automation and IT industries for over 6 years in several countries of the Americas and Europe.
During my PhD I focused on the intersection between deep learning, computer vision, neuroscience and reinforcement learning for robot localization and navigation.
Specifically, I studied biological neural architectures underlying these complex tasks in insect and rat mammalian brains, and developed high-performance and robust neural network models.
Topic (BSc thesis): Control of a three-phase induction motor via neural networks using a digital signal processor (DSP).
