Tadej Petrič

Short bio

Tadej Petrič attended the University of Maribor, Slovenia, where he obtained an M.Sc. in electrical engineering in 2008.  His M.Sc. covered modeling and robotic control of underactuated dynamic system. For his work, he received the Prof. Dr. Vratislav Bedjanič award in 2008.  In 2013 he received a D.Sc. in robotics from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Ljubljana.  He performed a part of his doctoral research at the Department of Robotic Systems for Dynamic Control of Legged Humanoid Robots at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany.  In 2013, he was a visiting researcher at ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Japan.  He is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow working with Prof. Auke Ijspeert in the Biorobotics Laboratory at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. His current research is concerned with the design of biologically plausible robot controllers that achieve robustness and adaptation to changing environments comparable to that found in humans.
