Robotics, Soft Body Manipulation, Skill Learning.
Paul is particularly interested in robotic manipulation and currently works on soft body manipulation. Prior to joining IAS, Paul was a research engineer at Naver Labs Europe, where he worked on using self-play for the discovery of high-level motion primitives for rigid body manipulation. Paul graduated from Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay, where he received one master's degree in Electrical Engineering (M2 E3A) and one in Machine Learning and Computer Vision (M2 MVA).
Paul is happy to collaborate with motivated students to work on soft body manipulation. Students should feel free to check the listed topics on the IAS website or contact Paul directly via e-mail to discuss exciting research directions.
