About

Johannes A. Stork is Associate Senior Lecturer and WASP Professor of machine learning at Örebro University and works at the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS). He joined the Autonomous Mobile Manipulation Lab (AMM) as a founding member. His main research interests are in machine learning and autonomous intelligent systems.

Starting spring of 2020 he is WASP Professor as part of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP), Sweden’s largest ever individual research program and major national initiative for strategic basic research, education, and faculty recruitment. From 2018 to 2020, he held a position as Associante Senior Lecturer as part of the vice cancellor’s strategic initiative for faculty defelopment. Before joining AASS in 2018, he was a post-doctoral researcher and before that PhD. student in Computer Science (Computer Vision and Robotics) at the Computer Vision and Active Perception Lab (CVAP) at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. He did his post-graduate research as a member of Professor Danica Kragic’s research group where his co-supervisors were Dr. Carl Henrik Ek and Dr. Yasemin Bekiroglu. Before that, he spent several years of his undergraduate studies at the University of Freiburg, Germany, as a student research assistant at the Social Robotics Lab of Professor Kai O. Arras. He holds a MSc. and a BSc. degree in Computer Science with concentration in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics from Freiburg University.
