Fumiya Iida is a SNF professor for bio-inspired robotics at ETH Zurich since August 2009. He received his bachelor and master degrees in mechanical engineering at Tokyo University of Science (Japan, 1999), and Dr. sc. nat. in Informatics at University of Zurich (2006). In 2004 and 2005, he was also engaged in biomechanics research of human locomotion at Locomotion Laboratory, University of Jena (Germany). From 2006 to 2009, he worked as a postdoctoral associate at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in USA. In 2006, he awarded the Fellowship for Prospective Researchers from the Swiss National Science Foundation, and in 2009, the Swiss National Science Foundation Professorship. His research interest includes biologically inspired robotics, embodied artificial intelligence, and biomechanics, where he was involved in a number of research projects related to dynamic legged locomotion, navigation of autonomous robots, and human-machine interactions. Based on the research achievements, he has so far published over forty publications in major robotics journals and conferences, and edited two books. Currently he serves as the editorial board of Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems and Frontiers in Neuroscience (Neurorobotics), the program committee member of international conferences and workshops. In addition, he has organized a few seminal meetings such as International Conference of Morphological Computation and International Seminar of Embodied Artificial Intelligence.
