Co supervisors: Prof. Martin Ludvigsen, Prof. Asgeir J. Sørensen, Prof. Edmund Førland Brekke
I completed my M.Sc. in Computer and Automation Engineering at the University of Siena in April 2016 and started my PhD at the ITK deparment in August, the same year. I'm affiliated with the “Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems” . I'm currently working on SLAM using deep learning tecniques.
