Roel Pieters

I am an assistant professor (tenure track) in Cognitive Robotics at Tampere University of Technology. Previously, I was a postdoc in the Intelligent Robotics group, in Aalto University, Finland, and a postdoc in the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems, Multi-Scale Robotics Lab as part of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich.I obtained my PhD degree in the Dynamics and Control group, department of Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands.

Alexandre Angleraud

PhD student in Cognitive Robotics. I studied computer engineering in Toulouse and had the chance to study as an exchange student in two other universities. First in Seoul National University for 5 months where I got introduced to artificial intelligence and in Aalto University where I worked for the first time with robots. Now the topic of my thesis is to try and push the limits of human-robot interaction. The aim is to make the introduction of robots in households and the collaboration in industrial settings one step closer.

quentin houbre

PhD student in Cognitive Robotics. I studied cognitive sciences and I have a special interest on developmental robotics. Like many researchers, I find the idea of an autonomous life-long learning robot very exciting. The topic of my PhD is to investigate how attention can help a robot to learn different tasks. To do so, I use a multidisciplinary approach that gather machine learning, psychology, neurosciences and other fields.

Metodi Netzev

DSc student in automation focusing on physical and mechatronic design through scalable solutions. I have a BEng degree in Motorsports Engineering from the University of Central Lancashire and Industrial Engineering and Management from Tampere University of Technology. I aim to deliver trust inspiring designs for locally available manufacturing processes.
