Meysam Basiri

Research Fellow

Meysam Basiri received the M.Sc degree in Systems, Control and Robotics from KTH, Sweden in 2010 and a dual PhD degree (2015) in Robotics from EPFL, Switzerland, and in Electrical and Computer Engineering from IST, Portugal. He is a former Postdoctoral researcher of the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at EPFL. Currently, he is an Assistant Researcher at IST, and a researcher of the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR). He has been involved in multiple internationally funded projects (RockEU2, SciRoc, SMAVNET, MBZIRC and DURABLE) and is the Principal Investigator for two H2020 Eurobench projects (MADROB, BEAST). His main research interests lie in the robotics area, with a special regard to real-world estimation and control problems. His main areas of expertise are aerial robotics, multi-robot systems, field and service robotics, and robot benchmarking. Meysam has received several awards for his research including two best paper awards from IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) and an outstanding PhD thesis award from IST. He was the team co-leader of the ISR team at the MBZIRC 2020 service robot competition that was awarded 1st place (250K USD award) in challenge 3. He has been a member of the Technical and Organizing committee of the European Robotics League (ERL) since the beginning and has designed/executed more than 20 local and major robot competitions around Europe.
