Past Collaborations

Research

My main interest is in the field of sensor data fusion, inertial sensors, localization, and motion tracking; with focus on robotics and biomechanics applications. I have been involved in several research projects developing localization and mapping systems for diverse mobile robot platforms since 1998, and self-contained indoor personal localization since 2003. An important use of this technology is the field gait analysis for medical applications. I have also been involved in the development of tracking algorithms for marine mammals (bottlenose dolphin).

Fun stuff

In my spare time I enjoy playing with robots made with LEGO parts. I maintain a website where I describe how to do this.
