#IROS2020 Real Roboticist focus series #3: Radhika Nagpal (Enjoying the Ride)

August 22, 2021

Today we continue with our series on IEEE/RSJ IROS 2020 (International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems) original series Real Roboticist. This time you’ll meet Radhika Nagpal, who is a Fred Kavli Professor of Computer Science at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering from Harvard University.

Did you know Radhika directed the research that led to the creation of the Kilobots, the first open-source, low-cost robots that were specifically designed for large scale experiments with hundreds and thousands of them? You can watch this example or this other one if you’re curious. If you’d like to know more about Radhika and her achievements, challenges and what she would tell her younger self, below is the whole interview. Enjoy!
