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. I hold a visitor scholar position (客員研究員) at the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, at the Harada Laboratory.

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. I was an Assistant Professor (助教) at the University of Tokyo until late 2023.


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

Prospective MSc students must refer to the Robotics MSc and Robotics MSc with Extended Research. Bespoke MSc Project Dissertation topics from students in other MScs (e.g. ACSE MSc) will be evaluated on a case by case basis according to university guidelines.


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, and IROS21.
