Lecturer in Robotics
I am a swarm engineer interested in designing large collective systems that self-organize. Swarm strategies are either inspired from nature (ant colonies and bird flocks) or are automatically designed in simulation using machine learning and crowdsourcing. Demonstrated applications include designing swarming nanoparticles for cancer treatment and deploying large aerial swarms for communication relay. Underlying all my work is a strong involvement in science communication and online learning as demonstrated by the award-winning and SNSF-backed non-profit association that I co-founded and which features over 1500 blog posts and 1.5 million podcast downloads. I've also produced award winning videos that have been viewed over 250'000 times and am an avid science tweeter.
