David Sierra González

PhD Candidate in Robotics


I'm a PhD candidate in robotics at Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, in the team CHROMA. My research focuses on the development of probabilistic methods to predict the development of traffic scenes. This is a joint project between Inria and Toyota Motor Europe. I am supervised by Christian Laugier and Jilles Dibangoye, and I collaborate closely with Víctor Romero-Cano. Earlier on this project I also worked with Dizan Vasquez.

Before joining Inria, I earned an MSc in Machine Learning from University College London. My Master Thesis was jointly supervised by Simon Julier and Luke Teacy. Before that, I obtained an MSc in Mechatronics Engineering and a BSc in Electronics Engineering from the University of Oviedo, Spain. In 2012 and 2013 I worked as a research engineer at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), near Munich. Under the supervision of Claudio Castellini, I applied machine learning techniques to develop advanced human-machine interfaces for the disabled.

Currently based in Grenoble, at the foot of the French Alps, I'm learning to enjoy the mountains and the randonnées.
