Background and activities

Fault-Tolerance and Reconfiguration for Collaborating Heterogeneous Underwater Robots

I obtained my B. Sc. and M. Sc. degrees in electrical engineering at the Technical University of Denmark where I specialised Robotics and Control at the department of Automation and Robotics. The title of my master thesis was 'Underwater Robotic System for Inspection' and was supervised by Prof. Mogens Blanke and Associate Prof. David Johan Christensen

I began my PhD candidacy at AMOS in August 2014 under supervision by Prof. Mogens Blanke. The topic of my work is on fault-tolerant operations for collaborating underwater robots with heterogeneous capabilities. In particular the focus of the project is on autonomy for long-term deployment, physical interaction between small underwater robots and manipulation in confined space environments.
