About Amy Loutfi

I am a Professor at the AASS Research Center,Department of Science and Technology, Örebro University, Sweden. I received my Ph.D in Computer Science in Örebro in 2006 in the field of robotic olfaction, and a BSc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Brunswick, Canada. From 2008-2010 I was the program coordinator for the International Masters in Robotics and Intelligent Systems at Örebro University. In 2011 I was the director of studies for all Computer Engineering programs Örebro University. In 2014 I became the deputy head of the department of Science and Technology.

My general interests include robotics and intelligent systems. More specifically I am interested in:

  • Machine Olfaction including Mobile Robot Olfaction
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning for Sensor Systems
  • Human-Robot Interaction and Social Robotic Telepresence
