Humberto Ramos was born in Zacatecas, Mexico where he obtained his Bachelor’s in Mechatronics Engineering. From 2010 to 2012 he served as engineering director at a mining company where he led the development of electronic consoles for explosive detonation sequences. In 2012 he returned to academia as a professor of controls and mechatronic design. In 2020 he obtained his Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from Texas A&M University. During his graduate studies at the Land Air and Space Robotics (LASR) laboratory, he explored computer vision algorithms for relative navigation for space proximity operations and visual-aided inertial navigation systems for GPS-denied navigation applications. In 2020 he joined the Mechanical and Aerospace department at the University of Florida as a postdoctoral researcher, sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory. During this time he developed new robust algorithms that extended the practical applicability of the Kalman filter. In 2023 he became a research scientist and manager of the Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory at the Research Education and Engineering Facility (REEF) in Shalimar, Florida. Here he continues collaborations with the Air Force Research Laboratory on GPS-denied navigation systems for Guidance, Navigation, and Control applications.
