Background and activities

I am currently working as a researcher on autonomous ships. My current research interesests includes autonomous docking, detection, tracking, navigation and SLAM in different applications. 

 

Previously, I worked as a PhD candidate on detection and tracking of floating objects using unmanned aerial vehicles with optical sensors.
