I joined the Natural Robotics Lab at The University of Sheffield in January 2022. I received an MSc degree in Robotics from The University of Sheffield and a BSc in Electromechanical Engineering from the Technological University of Panama. My research focuses on enhancing the performance of robotic swarms by using predicted information from models of the robots. The approach taken uses decentralized predictive control algorithms to model desired behaviors.

Research interests
  • Swarm robotics
  • Multi-robot systems
  • Model predictive control

I received a Grant to pursue my MSc and PhD studies from SENACYT Panama.

Teaching activities

I have worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the following modules:

  • ACS6121 Mobile Robotics and Autonomous Systems
  • ACS6501 Foundations of Robotics
