01 about


- Trained as a scientist and engineer. 

Maker at heart. -

I am a Ph.D. student at Cornell in Systems working at the Organic Robotics Laboratory.  My interest in Robotic Systems converges on the intersection of Computer Science, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering.   


Particularly, I'm interested in Complexity in Soft Robots and how the creation of robots that can feel and actuate as living beings would lead to the emergence of complex behaviors and why not intelligence. 


I received a Master degree in Systems Engineering at Cornell University focused on Product Development and Human Centered Design.   I did my bachelors in Electrical Engineering and Controls and started my career as an entrepreneur in my home country.
