I received the BSc and the MSc degrees in Mechatronics Engineering at University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2001 and 2003 respectively, and the PhD degree at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics, University of Sydney, Australia, in 2007. My Yoda Master was Hugh Durrant-Whyte.
In January, 2011, I commenced as a Senior Lecturer in machine learning at the School of Information Technologies, University of Sydney, where I lead the Learning and Reasoning Group. Before, I was an Australian Research Council (ARC) research fellow at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics. My research interests include Bayesian statistics, stochastic processes for spatial modelling, probabilistic networks, and multi-sensor perception. Over the last ten years I have applied these techniques to mining and exploration, environment monitoring, agriculture and healthcare.
