About Johannes Andreas Stork

Johannes A. Stork is Associate Senior Lecturer for machine learning at Örebro University and works at the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS). His main research interests are in autonomous intelligent systems and machine learning. 

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 Carl Henrik Ek and 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 with minor in Mathematics from Freiburg University.
