Research interests

My main interests are employing neural network architecture, particularly spiking neural networks, as a control architecture for robots. I'm currently focusing on low level motor control, i.e. CPGs, bipedal walking, and simple decision making schemes, associative learning paradigms and memory formation. I'm also interested in the neural network models of navigation and path integration, especially in the honey bee, which I would like to apply on a quadrocopter.



I'm collaborating with Artificial Intelligence Research Group of Prof. Raul Rojas in project Neurocopter with Tim Landgraf. As a side project I'm also working in the FU Robocup team with Hamid Moballegh.
