Hi! My name is Bernardo Aceituno (ברנרדו זייטון).

I am currently a Research Intern at Facebook AI Research. In regular time, I work Graduate Student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I work as a Research Assistant (RA) at the MIT MCube Lab with Prof. Alberto Rodriguez. My research covers the areas of Robotic Manipulation and Artificial Intelligence. I'm especially interested in finding solutions to planning and design problems that leverage physics and geometric information. 


During my undergraduate studies, I developed optimization models for legged-robot locomotion under the advice of Prof. G. Fernandez. I also worked on the Dynamic Legged Systems Laboratory (DLS) at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), where I developed a mixed-integer optimization planning algorithm for the HyQ quadruped.

In this website you'll some of my bio, relevant links and publications. Enjoy!
