Short Bio

Nicolas Andreff received the Engineer degree (~M.Sc.) in 1994 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Electronique, d’Electrotechnique, d’Informatique et d’Hydraulique de Toulouse, (Toulouse, France); the Ph.D. degree in 1999 in computer graphics, computer vision and robotics from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, (Grenoble, France) and the Habilitation degree in 2006 in Vision and Robotics from Université Blaise Pascal (Clermont-Ferrand, France).

His first work in research was performed in 1994 at the Automatic Control Department at Lunds Tekniska Högskola (Lund, Sweden) on the robustness to jitter in real-time control.

Then he throwed an eye to computer vision and robotics, and more specifically to visual servoing and robot calibration, during his PhD thesis at INRIA Rhône-Alpes (BIP and MOVI projects) from 1995-1999.

He also made some steps in bipedal robotics during his Post-Doc at INRIA Rhône-Alpes (BIP project) in 2000.

From 2000 to 2009, he was an Associate Professor with Institut Français de Mécanique Avance, Clermont-Ferrand. In parallel, he was developing a novel research activity dedicated to Vision-based Modeling, Identification and Control of Parallel Kinematic Machines.

Since September 2009, he has been a Professor at Université de Franche-Comté (Besançon, France) with the task of developing a research activity on medical micro-robotics.
