Biography

Jürgen “Juxi“ Leitner is a researcher at the intersection of #Robotics, #RoboticVision and Artificial Intelligence (#AI) at the newly formed ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision. Before coming to Australia he worked and studied at various research institutes in Europe and Japan.

From 2010-2014 he was working at the Robotics Lab of the Dalle Molle Institute for AI (IDSIA) in Lugano, Switzerland. Prior to IDSIA he worked at the European Space Agency‘s Advanced Concepts Team for a year.

He obtained a PhD for his work on the iCub humanoid robot from the Università della Svizzera Italian (USI) in Lugano, Switzerland. Juxi holds a Joint European Master Degree in Space Science and Technology (SpaceMaster), a Master of Science (Space Science and Technology) from the Luleå University of Technology, Sweden and a Master of Science in Technology (Space Robotics) from the Aalto University (formerly TKK) in Finland. During his diploma project he also was a short-term visiting student at the Intelligent Space Systems Lab at the University of Tokyo, Japan.

His background in computer science includes a Bachelor of Science (BSc) from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria and graduating from a vocational high-school in informatics.
