About me

I am a Lecturer in Robotics with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK. I am currently based at RAICo1. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor (助教) at the University of Tokyo.

I have a BS (2012) in Mechatronics Engineering and MS (2014) in Electronic Systems and Automation Engineering from the University of Brasilia. I obtained a PhD (2018) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tokyo.


Open opportunities (if any) for Ph.D and PDRA in my group are posted on my LinkedIn, the robotics-worldwide mailing list, and UoM jobs page (when applicable).

Prospective MSc students must refer to the MSc Robotics and MSc Robotics with Extended Research.


My work has been focused on teleoperated and/or (semi-)automomous robots applied to medicine and scientific exploration. Notably

Those implementations are based on a rigourous constrained kinematic robot control framework suitable for all sorts of robots.

I also have a few works in pure image processing, mostly related to robotics, e.g. IJCARS20, ICRA20, IROS21.
