Rescuing Biscayne Bay Project
FIU - Marine Robotics Lab

In August 2020, Biscayne Bay, FL, experienced unprecedented levels of low oxygen, resulting in a massive fish kill and one week later, gray-green algae along the coast. Alongside my colleagues and students, we are deploying our autonomous underwater vehicles to collect water data and investigate the causes of this environmental disaster.

Research Projects 🤖

My research interests intersect the areas of Aquatic Robots, Persistent Ocean Monitoring, Artificial Intelligence, and STEM Education.

Key problems I have addressed so far include: localization and navigation of underwater robots in GPS-denied environments, analysis of the spatio-temporal dynamics of the ocean, data analysis of water profiles, persistent monitoring of the ocean using under-actuated robots, and artificial intelligence models applied to agriculture and welfare of poultry.

Recently, I have studied the integration of active learning into Software Engineering and Programming synchronous remote learning environments and how to effectively implement and assess robotics educational platforms in the K-12 curriculum.

So far I have published 16 articles and I have 92 citations.
