I am a senior research assistant at University of Southampton
I am currently a senior research assistant in University of Southampton working with Professor Sarvapali Ramchurn. I was a PhD fellow at the University of Luebeck in Germany and a member of a EU-project flora robotica. My supervisor and the coordinator of the project was Professor Heiko Hamann. I have a MSc degree in Computer Science from University of Paderborn in Germany and a BSc degree in Software Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology. Check my CV for the full story!
as a roboticist I work on:
I work on designing large number of robots that can perform complicated tasks together. It is an open challenge to design algorithms for robots that can adapt to dynamic features of the environment. I work on swarms that can autonomously adapt to dynamic conditions.
Inspired by Darwinian theory of evolution, evolutionary robotics emerged with great early success and is meanwhile struggling to scale to more complex tasks. I study how robots can be evolve to solve complex tasks with a minimum a priori knowledge.
Can we get inspired and mimic nature to build autonomous systems? I would like to know how we can learn from organisms such as plants, slime molds, and animals to build amazing algorithms and behaviors.
