About Ravi Chadalavada

I’m a Ph.D. student working on Human-Robot Interaction for the Action and Intention Recognition project. While doing my M.Sc. in Systems Control and Mechatronics at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, I moved to Mobile Robotics and Olfaction Lab in 2015 to pursue my Master’s thesis in HRI and thereafter started my Ph.D. The primary focus of my work is on developing techniques to optimize the interaction between robots and humans in a synergeticmanner in industrial environments especially in intra-logistics sector.

I come from a city called Vijayawada in India. I did my Bachelors in Mechatronics at SRM University, Chennai, during which I had the opportunity to participate in a couple of exchange programs abroad. I spent a semester at the School of Mechanical Engineering, MIT, USA and another semester in Tokyo for my Bachelor’s thesis. Upon completion of my bachelors, I worked as a consultant in an investing firm in Hyderabad, where I had dealt with a variety of projects in Energy sector.

I moved to Gothenburg for my Masters during which I also had the opportunity to start-up a robotics company with a team of students from Chalmers, where we were developing a service robot for super markets, offices and museums. This was a very valuable opportunity for me to learn technical and business related lessons simultaneously.I love traveling, especially long drives, reading books and playing Chess.
