Joao Cartucho is a Ph.D. student in The Hamlyn Centre at Imperial College London, working at Surgical Robotics and Imaging Diagnostics and Sensing. He is supervised by Dr. Stamatia Giannarou, Professor Dan Elson and .
During his master thesis, he collaborated with Professor Manuela Veloso at Carnegie Mellon University on a learning algorithm that enhances a robot's object recognition capabilities by proactively asking humans for help, at the Machine Learning Department. This work was published in IROS 2018 and was a finalist for the Best RoboCup Paper Award.
