Prof. Dana Kulić conducts research in robotics and human-robot interaction (HRI), and develops autonomous systems that can operate in concert with humans, using natural and intuitive interaction strategies while learning from user feedback to improve and individualize operation over long-term use. Dana Kulić received the combined B. A. Sc. and M. Eng. degree in electro-mechanical engineering, and a Ph. D. degree in mechanical engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada, in 1998 and 2005, respectively. From 2006 to 2009, Dr. Kulić was a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow and a Project Assistant Professor at the Nakamura-Yamane Laboratory at the University of Tokyo, Japan. In 2009, Dr. Kulić established the Adaptive System Laboratory at the University of Waterloo, Canada, conducting research on human robot interaction, human motion analysis for rehabilitation and humanoid robotics. Since 2019, Dr. Kulić has been a professor and director of Monash Robotics at Monash University, Australia. Her research interests include robot learning, humanoid robots, human-robot interaction and mechatronics.
