At the intersection of multi-agent systems, AI, and robotics, every discovery gets us a step closer to a future where machines collaborate seamlessly, not only among themselves but also with human society.


Lucas graduated in Electrical Engineering at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN), Natal, Brazil, on December 2019. From January to July 2019, he was a visiting student at the Information Systems Lab/KAUST, when he worked with indoor localization systems using acoustic waves. In the following year, he joined KAUST as a MSc./P.h.D. student under the supervision of Dr. Tareq Al-Naffouri. He successfully obtained his MSc. degree in December 2021. His Master's thesis was titled A Bayesian Approach to D2D Proximity Estimation using Radio CSI Measurements, and the continuation of this work led to a journal publication at the IEEE Open Journal of the Communications Society. He is currently a Ph.D. student at the Distributed Systems and Autonomy Group/KAUST, under the supervision of Dr. Shinkyu Park.
