About Jaime Pulido Fentanes

Jaime Pulido Fentanes is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems, School Computer Science.

Department Responsibilities

I have twelve years experience on the field of mobile robots, working in different projects multiple fields such as Robot Navigation and Mapping, Exploration, Social Robotics, Human-Robot Interaction, Robot design, and Machine Learning. My main research interests have focused on several aspects of robotics navigation, mapping and exploration. I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Valladolid in Spain where I proposed an exploration method oriented to create a 3D model of an outdoor environment. In 2013 I became a post-doctoral researcher at the university of Lincoln as part of the STRANDS project where I worked on the development of spatio-temporal representations for robotic navigation. Currently, I am carrying out new research in Robotic Mapping of Soil Moisture, including the integration of a novel mobile soil moisture sensor with a new outdoor mobile robot platform and development of high-definition soil moisture mapping techniques, data acquisition strategies, long-term probabilistic model adaptation and outdoor mobile robot navigation. I have participated at the ROBOCUP@HOME as member of a joint team with Sapienza University of Rome and the University of Lincoln, where we obtained 3rd position in the year 2017. I have collaborated with the supervision of both undergraduate project and Ph.D. students and led robotics modules and sessions in summer schools, and professional formation modules.
