Profile Picture

I am Alexis Linard, Postdoctoral Researcher at KTH - Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (Sweden). I am part of the division of Robotics, Perception and Learning (RPL), as well as the WASP Expedition Project on Correct-by-design and Socially Acceptable Autonomy (CorSA). I am currently doing research in the fields of Cyber-Physical Systems, Robotics, Automata and Model Learning.
