Short Bio

Angela Schoellig is an Alexander von Humboldt Professor for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at the Technical University of Munich. She is also an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies and a Faculty Member of the Vector Institute in Toronto. Angela conducts research at the intersection of robotics, controls, and machine learning. Her goal is to enhance the performance, safety, and autonomy of robots by enabling them to learn from past experiments and from each other. In Canada, she has held a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Machine Learning for Robotics and Control and a Canada CIFAR Chair in Artificial Intelligence and has been a principal investigator of the NSERC Canadian Robotics Network. She is a recipient of the Robotics: Science and Systems Early Career Spotlight Award (2019), a Sloan Research Fellowship (2017), and an Ontario Early Researcher Award (2017). She is one of MIT Technology Review’s Innovators Under 35 (2017), a Canada Science Leadership Program Fellow (2014), and one of Robohub’s 25 women in robotics you need to know about (2013). Her team is the four-time winner of the North American SAE AutoDrive Challenge (2018-2021).

Her PhD at ETH Zurich (2013) was awarded the ETH Medal and the Dimitris N. Chorafas Foundation Award. She holds both an M.Sc. in Engineering Cybernetics from the University of Stuttgart (2008) and an M.Sc. in Engineering Science and Mechanics from the Georgia Institute of Technology (2007).
