Currently, I am a researcher with Prof. Tamás Szirányi and I am the Leader of the Robot localization group of Machine Perception Research Laboratory, Computer and Automation Institute of Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher with Davide Scaramuzza at the Robotics and Perception Group, University of Zurich, Switzerland. I received my Ph.D. in 2011 form the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (TU Cluj) in the field of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping of mobile robots. My Ph.D. thesis was co-advised by Prof. Gheorghe Lazea, Robotics Research Group, TU Cluj, Romania, and Prof. José A. Castellanos, Robotics, Perception and Real Time Group, University of Zaragoza, Spain.
My research interests include spatial AI, semantic scene understanding, neural representations, and their applications to mobile robots.
