Research AssistantEPFL Artificial Intellgence LabIn my PhD research on Distributed Constraint Optimization (DCOP), I have focused on two issues:
- Protecting agents' privacy, through the use of codenames, obfuscation and/or encryption;
- Reasoning about uncertainty, and exploiting common dependencies on sources of uncertainty to produce higher-quality solutions.
Examples of applications I have looked at include sensor networks, truck fleet coordination, meeting scheduling, or robot coordination.
I am also a principal developer of the FRODO open-source platform for DCOP.

My PhD thesis is in the field of Distributed Constraint Optimisation in the Artificial Intelligence Lab (LIA), under the supervision of Prof. Boi Faltings. I have focused on the topic of multi-agent decision making with privacy guarantees, and under uncertainty.

Young Graduate TraineeEuropean Space AgencyThe goal of the OPS-HSC team is to identify existing software technologies such as automated Planning and Scheduling, Artificial Neural Networks or Fuzzy Logic, and infuse them into the day-to-day ESA activities in order to facilitate spacecraft operations. This “infusion” is done following a spiral development approach.
My current projects include MEXAR/RAXEM (planning of uplink and downlink operations for the Mars Express spacecraft – paper to be published at SpaceOps’06), battery management optimisation for Mars Express, and early warning of impact of solar flares on ESA interplanetary probes.

Research AssistantMIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence LabResearch in the MERS group focuses mainly on three areas: model-based programming of fault-aware systems, coaching robotic networks through model-based programming, and hybrid model-based adaptive systems, with applications ranging from planetary exploration rovers to biped robots, to the automobile industry.
In my Master’s thesis, "Coordinating Agile Vehicles through the Model-based Execution of Temporal Plans", I tackled the problem of robust, high-level guidance of hybrid discrete-continuous systems. This work was applied to unmanned aerial vehicles, and lead to a paper published at AAAI05 under the same title.

Intern ProgrammerCentro Meteorológico Territorial en Canarias OccidentalesThe Territorial Meteorological Centre in Western Canaries delivers weather predictions for the four Western Canary Islands of Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.
As an intern programmer, I worked on a project aiming to upgrade the weather prediction software in use at the Centre to a more modern software, based on a method of statistical inference. The software was partly in Quick Basic, partly in Fortran 77.
