My name is Henry Carrillo and I was born in Barranquilla,
Colombia in 1986. I received my B.Eng (Hons) in Electronics Engineering, First class rank, from the Universidad del Norte (Barranquilla, Colombia) in 2007 and a M.Sc in Electronics Engineering, with a summa cum laude distinction, from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (PUJ) (Bogotá, Colombia) in 2010. Since September of 2010, I am a PhD Student in the Robotics, Perception and Real Time Group of the Department of Computer Science and System Engineering, at the Universidad de Zaragoza (Zaragoza, Spain). I am working on active SLAM advised by José Angel Castellanos, Ph.D.
Between May 2013 and October 2013, I had the pleasure of being a visiting researcher at the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, USA) there I worked with Prof. Vijay Kumar. For six months, from April 2012 until October 2012, I had the opportunity of being a visiting researcher at the AG Echtzeitbildverarbeitung (Real-Time Computer Vision Group) of the Universität Bremen - Deutsche Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz (DFKI) (Bremen, Germany), during that time I worked with Prof. Dr. –Ing. Udo Frese. Between July 2011 and December 2011, I was a visiting researcher at the Active Vision Group of the University of Oxford (Oxford, United Kingdom) there, I worked with Prof. Ian Reid. From April 2010 to July 2010, I was a "Stagiere" at the Robotique, Action et Perception (RAP) group of the Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systèmes (LAAS-CNRS) (Toulouse, France), under the supervision of Prof. Michel Devy, Ph.D. From January 2008 to December 2009, I also worked as a Research Assistant in the Department of Electronics at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, advised by Prof. Carlos Parra, Ph.D. The assistantship was within the Intelligent System, Robotics and Perception Research Group (SIRP), in a project related with mobile robotics. Furthermore, in the first semester of 2008, I had the opportunity to lecture a course on Expert Systems at the Faculty of Social Communication and Languages at PUJ and also, from January to July of 2009, I was a Teaching Assistant in the Section of Digital Techniques of the Department of Electronics at PUJ.
