"Nicolas Franceschini"

Nicolas Franceschini received the B.E. degree in electronic engineering, the M.S. degree in control engineering, and the Doctorat d’Etat degree in physics from the University of Grenoble and National Polytechnic Institute, Grenoble, France. He then studied neuroscience, behavioral science and biological cybernetics at the University and Max-Planck-Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tübingen, Germany. In 1979, he was appointed as a Research Director at C.N.R.S. and set up the Neurocybernetics Lab, and later the Biorobotics Lab in Marseille, France. His research interests include neural information processing, vision, eye movements, microoptics, neuromorphic circuits, sensory-motor control systems, biologically-inspired robots and autopilots. Dr. Franceschini has largely contributed to initiating and developing the field of Biorobotics since 1985. He has received several honors in both neuroscience and robotics, including three IEEE paper awards, the C.N.R.S silver medal in Life Science, the Grand Prize in Integrative Neuroscience from the French Academy of Science, and the international LVMH (Louis-Vuitton-Moët-Hennessy) prize. In 1996, he was elected as a member of the Academia Europaea.
