ROBOT'2015 - Second Iberian Robotics Conference, Lisbon, Portugal

Special Session: Environmental Robotics DEADLINE: July 31, 2015

(Extended to August 7, 2015)

Lady's, gentlemen and others, welcome to my '/HOME'.

I little bit about me:

My name is João Valente I was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in the 7th of June of 1982. Therefore, I am Portuguese. Currently, I am a researcher in Robotics Lab and visiting professor at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.

I studied Computer and Electronics Engineering in the Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, from the Universidade Nova de Lisboa.

I have been working in robotics since 2007. My long journey as Roboticist started in Rome at the “La Sapienza” University. I was visitor student in the dipartimento Antonio Ruperti where I made my dissertation thesis supervised by Daniele Nardi and Luis Gomes. Over one year I worked in the SIED Lab, which means Laboratory for Intelligent Systems for Emergencies and Civil defense, situated at the Istituto Superiore Antincendi (ISA). In the present called LabRoCoCo.

After that, I joined immediately the Robotics & Cybernetics research group from the Centre for Automation and Robotics UPM-CSIC where I began as a researcher and Master/PhD student in Robotics & Automation. I received my PhD from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Escola Técnica Superiore de Ingeneros Industriales) in November of 2014. My advisor was Antonio Barrientos, head of the Robotics & Cybernetics research group.

From November of 2012 to February of 2013, I was a visiting research associate at the Robotics and Intelligent Systems Lab in the Electrical Engineering Department of The City College of New York - the flagship campus of the City University of New York system. My advisor was Jizhong Xiao.

Finally, from February to April of 2014 I was visiting research associate at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Institut de Recherches Interdisciplinaires et de Développements en Intelligence Artificielle (IRIDIA) under the supervision of Thomas Stützle.
