Miguel Saavedra-Ruiz

Ph.D, Université de Montréal

I am a PhD student at Université de Montréal and Mila, under the supervision of Liam Paull. My affiliation is with the Robotics and Embodied AI Lab (REAL), where I pursue research at the intersection of robotics and AI.

My primary research interests lies in the following areas:

  • State estimation
  • Robot navigation
  • SLAM
  • Lie group theory
  • Deep learning for robotics perception

Central to my research is the following question: “How can embodied agents effectively leverage prior knowledge—be it geometric, semantic, or topological—pertaining to a task, seamlessly integrating it within a robotics stack, and thereby enhancing the overall system performance?
