Camilo Perez received his Ph.D. in Computing Science from the University of Alberta, Canada in 2017. In his dissertation, he studied Communication Mechanisms for Cooperative Human-Robot Manipulation Tasks. He is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the CARIS lab in the University of British Columbia, where he is working in collaboration with colleagues at German DLR on developing an augmented reality multimodal interface for aerospace part manufacturing. He is also part of a Mitacs program in which he is developing Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) for sidewalk mobile robots for an industrial partner.

My research focuses on developing communication mechanisms for human-robot interaction. I enjoy working in detail-oriented and multidisciplinary teams to translate research from HRI and computer vision to advance mission-critical system. Thanks to my multidisciplinary background, I have the capacity of turning a novel idea into a functional prototype.
