New: I recently finished my postdoc member of the Kinematics and Robot Design Group at the IRI Robotics lab in Barcelona and I am looking for a job opportunity ! If you want to contact me, you can send me an e-mail. You can also download my CV.

I am interested in the design of new algorithms for complex motion planning problems, with main applications in the areas of robotics and computational Biology.

In robotics, my previous research had particular emphasis on highly-constrained systems, optimal motion planning, high-dimensional spaces, kinodynamic motion planning with sensing and control uncertainty, dynamic environments, human-robot interactions, and disassembly operations.

In computational biology, I mainly focussed on the analysis of conformational changes in molecular loops, the design of hybrid strategies to combine path planners with energetic models as well as the analysis of constrained accessibility pathways in ligand-protein interactions.
