Combining Semantic and Geometric Scene Understanding: From Robot Manipulation to Planetary Science
Renaud Detry is a research scientist at NASA JPL, and a visiting researcher at ULiege/Belgium and KTH/Stockholm. Detry earned a Master's degree in computer engineering and a Ph.D. in robot learning from ULiege in 2006 and 2010. Shortly thereafter he earned two Starting Grants from the Swedish and Belgian national research institutes. He served as a postdoc at KTH and ULiege between 2011 and 2015, before joining the Robotics and Mobility Section at JPL in 2016. His research interests are in perception for manipulation, robot grasping, computer vision and machine learning. At JPL, Detry is involved in the Mars Sample Return technology development program, and he conducts research in robot autonomy for mobility and opportunistic science on Mars, Europa and Enceladus.
