Assistant Professor Andre Rosendo
PI at ShanghaiTech University, China
Andre Rosendo’s research interests are related to evolutionary robotics, soft manipulation and robotic locomotion. Robots are increasingly present in our lives, and they must be safe to interact with humans while also being capable of adapting to our world. Andre's research combines walking robots capable of intelligently creating themselves, with safe humans/environment interactions through soft materials. His research output was recognized by one Discovery Channel special show, two IEEE Spectrum articles (here and here), and online articles (ENG, FRA, ITA, GER, CHI, POR, RUS, etc.). He has published more than 30 scientific papers in more than 10 IEEE conferences, was a program committee for MOD 2017, a keynote speaker for ICINCO 2017, and currently holds an Erdos number of 5. He was a Guest Editor for the IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine and a referee for Science Robotics, IEEE Transactions on Robotics, IEEE Trans. on Mechatronics, IEEE Intl. Conf. on Intelligent Robots and Systems, and IEEE Intl. Conf. on Automation and Robotics.
