Dr. Nataliya Strokina from the Vision Group received highly competitive Academy of Finland post-doc funding for the years 2017-2020. In her post-doc project she will investigate robotics, computer vision and machine learning and, in particular, underwater robotics with advanced underwater sensors. In her work, Dr. Strokina will combine the two current hot topics of engineering robotics and artificial intelligence.
In addition to her own research, Dr. Strokina will also supervise junior researchers and collaborate with robotics research groups in TUT and abroad. An important collaborator during the project is the Center of Biorobotics, Tallinn University of Technology, lead by Prof. Maarja Kruusmaa who also was the director of the FishView project.
Nataliya Strokina received the M.Sc. degrees in software engineering and intelligent computing from Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University, Saint Petersburg, Russia, Russian Federation and Lappeenranta University of Technology, Lappeenranta, Finland, correspondingly in 2009, and the Ph.D. degree in engineering and technology from the Lappeenranta University of Technology in 2013. Since 2014, she has held a post-doctoral researcher position with the Tampere University of Technology, Tampere, Finland. Her current research interests include machine learning, image understanding, and signal processing methods for underwater robotics.
