Associate Professor, Technical University of Denmark
DenmarkAssoc. Prof. Silvia Tolu currently leads the Neurorobotics LAB (NRT-LAB) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). She holds a Ph.D. degree in Neuromorphic Computing from the University of Granada (Spain). Her main research experience is in bio-inspired control for robots, compliant human-robot interactions, computational models of the cerebellum, and machine learning. Her research focuses on developing brain-based methods and technologies for enabling autonomy in robots while they act in realistic, dynamic, and rich sensory environments. Her vision is to open revolutionary robotics paradigms and discover novel methods for the diagnosis and rehabilitation of neurodegenerative diseases. Silvia has published in influential journals and proceedings in both robotics and computational neuroscience and has served as a reviewer for top-ranked conferences and journals. Most of her research has been performed in the context of European projects. She is currently on the Editorial Board of Frontiers Neurorobotics.
