Professor in Computer science at the Royal Institute of Technology
Membership period 2011–2016
My research lies in the field of computer science with focus on computer vision and robotics. I study how robots sense things and how they interact with each other. My research focuse in particular on the development of robots' ability to see and grasp things. One of my goals is to build future systems that by the help of sensors interacts with humans and the surrounding in a natural way.
