Nicolas Andreff received the Engineer degree (~M.Sc., 1994) in Computer Sciences and Applied Mathematics from ENSEEIHT, Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Electronique, d’Electrotechnique, d’Informatique et d’Hydraulique de Toulouse, (Toulouse, France); the DEA (~M.Sc., 1995) and the Ph.D. degree (1999) in Computer Graphics, Computer Vision and Robotics from INPG, Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, (Grenoble, France) and the Habilitation degree (2006) in Vision and Robotics from UBP, the 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 IFMA, 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 at LASMEA.

Since September 2009, he has been a Professor at UFC, Université de Franche-Comté (Besançon, France) and the head of MiNaRoB, the research group on Biomedical Micro-/Nano-Robotics at the AS2M department of FEMTO-ST.
