Birthplace: Brazil

I was born on 29th January, 1971 in Brazil. I received my B.Sc. Mechanical Engineer (ME) degree with emphasis on Mechatronics in 1993 at University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil. I received my M.Sc. ME and D.Sc. ME degrees, respectively, in 1997 and 2000 at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. During my D.Sc. studies I spent 8 months as a guest student at the Institute of Robotics (IfR) - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich (ETHZ). At that time I was involved in researches on obstacle avoidance and map building procedures for indoor mobile robots. From August 2005 until July 2006 I did a Sabbatical at the Autonomous System Lab (ASL) - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL). There I was involved in researches on obstacle avoidance for indoor and outdoor mobile robots. From 2001 until 2008 I was an associate professor at Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC Minas), Brazil. From 2002 to 2005 I was also the co-head of the Mechatronics Engineering Department and of the Robotics and Automation Group (GEAR) at PUC Minas. Since 2008 I am Professor at University of São Paulo (EESC-USP). Since 2021 I am the Co-President of the ETH Alumni Chapter in Sao Paulo (Brazil). I published more than 100 papers in the fields of mechanical design and mobile robotics in several conferences and journals. Although my research interests range broadly, my chief areas of interest are mobile robots for agriculture, inspection robots, design methodologies and tools, mechanical design applied on robots and mechatronics.
