Robert Krug

I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the AASS Mobile Robotics and Olfaction Lab. Born and raised in the Austrian Alps, I moved to the Mid-Swedish flatlands to start my Ph.D. in dexterous manipulation with robotic hands as part of the HANDLE project. Currently, I'm working on the ROBLOG project which is aimed at the autonomous unloading of shipping containers in a logistics scenario.

Brief CV

I was born in 1981 in Tamsweg, Austria. After attending a secondary college for timber industry and doing my military service, I joined the University of Technology in Graz, Austria. From 2005 to 2007 I was employed as an undergraduate assistant at the Institute of Mechanics, where I was involved in the teaching of Technical Mechanics, as well as in the institute's research activities. In 2009 I graduated with a diploma degree in "Mechatronics in Mechanical Engineering", focusing on robotics and control theory. One semester of my studies, I spent at the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic. In the course of my diploma thesis, I developed a 3-axis Pick & Place - robot with high dynamics. During this time, I worked as a freelancer at M&R Automation in Graz, Austria. Since September 2009 I've been working as a Ph.D. student at the Centre of Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS), Írebro University where I'm a Postodocoral researcher since October 2014.
