Institute of Mechatronic Systems, Leibniz Universität Hannover
Thomas Seel’s research aims at synthesizing sensorimotor intelligence in robotic and biomedical systems by exploiting synergies between systems and control theory and machine learning. This includes the development of new methods for artificial motor learning and for information fusion in intelligent sensor networks as well as the application of these methods in soft robotic systems, autonomous vehicles, and biomimetic neuroprostheses. In 2023, he was appointed Head of the the Institute of Mechatronic Systems at Leibniz Universität Hannover. Earlier, he has held the professorship for Intelligent Sensorimotor Systems at the Department Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Engineering at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, and he received a PhD degree in Systems and Control Theory from TU Berlin in 2016.
