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.

I received my Electronics Engineer degree from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and my 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, automatic design and, in overall, robotics developments that use the Robot Operating System (ROS).

The DEMIURGE: automatic design of robot swarms

I conduct my research within the framework of the 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 possibility of automatically designing robot swarms that are capable of reacting to environmental changes and of performing sequences of tasks.
