Robert Haschke received the diploma in Computer Science from the University of Bielefeld, Germany, in 1999. After a 3-year scholarship within the graduate program Structure forming phenomena he received the PhD degree in 2004 with a thesis on oscillating recurrent neural networks. Robert is currently heading the Robotics Group within the Neuroinformatics Group. His fields of research include recurrent neural networks, cognitive bimanual robotics, grasping and manipulation with multifingered dextrous hands, tactile sensing, and software integration.
