About

Virginia Ruiz Garate is currently a PostDoc at the Human-Robot Interfaces and Physical Interaction (HRI²) laboratory of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Italy. She obtained her PhD in 2016 from the Universite Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium. Previously she completed the two year EMARO program (European Master in Advanced Robotics) between the Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France and the Politechnika Warszawska, Poland. Her current research interests include grasping and manipulation, bio-inspired control, assistive robotics, and human-robot collaboration. She has been serving as a reviewer for IEEE journals and conferences such as RA-L, TII, ICRA, IROS, ICORR, BioRob, and CASE.
