Professor Matei Ciocarlie

Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Matei Ciocarlie is an Associate Professor of Mechanical

Engineering at Columbia University. His main interest is in

robotics, looking to discover how artificial mechanisms can

interact with the world as skillfully as biological organisms.

Matei’s current work focuses on robot motor control,

mechanism and sensor design, planning and learning, all

aiming to demonstrate complex motor skills such as dexterous

manipulation. Matei completed his Ph.D. at Columbia

University in New York; his doctoral dissertation was the

winner of the 2010 Robotdalen Scientific Award. Before

joining the faculty at Columbia, he was a Research Scientist and

then Group Manager at Willow Garage, Inc., a privately funded

Silicon Valley robotics research lab, and then a Senior Research

Scientist at Google, Inc. In recognition of his work, Matei has

been awarded the Early Career Award by the IEEE Robotics

and Automation Society, a Young Investigator Award by the

Office of Naval Research, a CAREER Award by the National

Science Foundation, and a Sloan Research Fellowship by the

Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
