I have a B.Sc. in Control and Automation from the University of Brasilia (UnB), and a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). Currently, I am a PhD Student in the team LARSEN at INRIA Nancy under the supervision of Dr. Jean-Baptiste Mouret, and Dr. Serena Ivaldi.
My thesis subject is “Intelligent cooperation between humans and robots”. The research aims to use knowledge of human motor control and machine learning to control the whole body of a humanoid robot (iCub) that cooperates seemlessly with a human partner to execute a certain task.
