Leonardo Bobadilla Ph.D.
School of Computing and Information Sciences at Florida International University (SCIS), College of Engineering and Computing, Florida International University (FIU)
Dr. Leonardo Bobadilla (FIU) is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing and Information Sciences at Florida International University (SCIS), College of Engineering and Computing, Florida International University (FIU) since 2013. He received his Bachelor degree from the National University of Colombia in Computer Engineering, his Master Degree in Statistics from the National University of Colombia and his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
He is interested in understanding the information requirements for solving fundamental robotics tasks such as navigation, patrolling, tracking, and motion safety and has deployed test-beds that can monitor and control a large number of mobile units that require minimal sensing, actuation, and computation. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers. His research articles have appeared in prestigious journals such as IEEE Journal of Automation Science and Engineering, IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, and ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks and in top conferences such as ICRA (IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation), IROS (IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems), and RSS (The Robotics: Science and Systems). His research has been sponsored by the Army Research Office, Department of Homeland Security, NSF, and the Ware Foundation. He has graduated four Ph.D. students and one master’s student who are well placed in major companies and universities. Dr. Bobadilla has served in 2016, 2017, and 2018 as the Associate Editor for IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation.
