Leonardo Fellowship of BBVA Foundation


I have been awarded a Leonardo Fellowship of the BBVA Foundation. These fellowships provide 40,000€ to develop research projects with a duration between 12 and 18 months. Only 59 fellowships have been awarded out of 1,580 applicants (5 out of 144 in the area of engineering and architecture). 

My project is entitled "Training robots for intervening in dangerous environments: development and application of reinforcement learning models". I will be writing here about how the project is developing. Meanwhile, you can find more information at the official website.
