I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the iCore Lab in the Mechanical Enginerinng department at Louisiana State University. I am currently working on intelligent control techniques, with a focus on Reinforcement learning for the control of autonomous underwater vehicle manipulator systems. I obtained my PhD in the National University of Central Buenos Aires working with a scolarship from the National Scientific and Research Council.
My main research interest is focused on the development of artificial intelligence techniques for the control of complex robotic platforms, such as underwater autonomous vehicle-manipulator systems. Particularly, I am interested in reinforcement learning (RL) as a suitable control strategy for this type of complex control systems. Currently during my postdoctoral studies, I have been exploring the benefits of data-driven models and bio spired neural network architectures for control.
