Ruzena Bajcsy

Professor, University of California, Berkeley

Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences

Ruzena Bajcsy, Ph.D. holds the NEC chair in EECS, is a founding director of CITRIS and lead Investigator for the Teleimmersion and Personal Assistive Control Technology (PACT) labs. Known for her pioneering work in robotics, machine perception and artificial intelligence, she has strong background of cross-disciplinary research both within her own labs as well as through cross departmental and institutional collaborations. Her current work focuses in modelling the dynamics of human and human/machine interactions with applications in assistive robotic devices, clinical evaluation and rehabilitative assistance.
