David Garzón Ramos

PhD student in Swarm Robotics

Introducing myself, 

I am researcher at IRIDIA, the Artificial Intelligence research laboratory of the Université Libre de Bruxelles. My research is funded by the Colombian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation ‑ Minciencias, Colombia, and also through the ERC DEMIURGE project

I received an Electronics Engineer degree and a master's degree on Engineering and Industrial Automation from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. I also received a master’s degree on Automation and Robotics from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. In 2017, I joined the team of Dr. Mauro Birattari and started a PhD on Engineering and Technology under his supervision. 

My research interests are swarm robotics, optimization-based design of control software, and the Robot Operating System (ROS).

I love producing robot videos!!! Specially when there are many of them :) .

The DEMIURGE: automatic design of robot swarms

I conduct my research within the framework of the ERC DEMIURGE project

Our goal is to advance the state of the art in swarm robotics by developing the DEMIURGE: an intelligent system that is able to design and realize robot swarms in a totally integrated and automatic way. 

I investigate the automatic designing robot swarms that are capable of reacting to environmental changes and of performing sequences of tasks.
