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. She has been serving as a reviewer for IEEE journals and conferences such as RA-L, ICRA, IROS, BioRob, etc. She co-organized the RSS 2019 workshop on "Emerging Paradigms for Robotic Manipulation: from the Lab to the Productive World" from which a Special Issue developed for the IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine (RAM). In the (HRI²) group she worked for the SOMA project studying new grasping paradigms, and she is now researching under the SOPHIA project. Her current research interests include grasping and manipulation, bio-inspired control, assistive robotics, and human-robot collaboration.
