Thadeu Knychala Tucci is currently PhD Student in Computer Science in the Optimization, Mobility, NetworkIng (OMNI) team at the Department of Computer Science for Complex Systems (DISC) of Femto-ST. He works under the supervision of Julien Bourgeois (FEMTO-ST), Benoît Piranda (FEMTO-ST). He is involved in Coordination and Computation in Distributed Intelligent MEMS (CO2Dim), VisibleSim and Claytronics projects. His thesis is about representation maps for modular robots. More precisely, he works on data representation and data dissemination in modular robot systems. The aim is to combine these mechanisms to design efficient self-reconfiguration algorithms.
