Auke Ijspeert is a full professor at EPFL , and head of the Biorobotics Laboratory (BioRob. He has PhD in artificial intelligence from the University of Edinburgh and has been at EPFL since 2002, where he was first an SNF assistant professor and later an associate professor. His research interests are at the intersection between robotics, computational neuroscience, nonlinear dynamical systems and applied machine learning. He is interested in using numerical simulations and robots to gain a better understanding of animal locomotion and movement control, and in using inspiration from biology to design novel types of mobile, walking robots and locomotion controllers.
