Biography (略歴)

Dr. Mitsuhiro Hayashibe is a Professor at the Department of Robotics, Graduate School of Engineering, Tohoku University, Japan, and founder of the Neuro-Robotics Lab since 2017. He is concurrently with the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, Tohoku University. He obtained PhD at University of Tokyo in 2005, and the Habilitation degree at University of Montpellier in 2015. He was previously an Assistant Professor with the Department of Medicine, Tokyo Jikei University School of Medicine (東京慈恵会医科大学医学部) for 2001-2006, and a Tenured Research Scientist with INRIA (Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique, フランス国立情報学自動制御研究所) and University of Montpellier, France for 2008-2017. He has been a visiting researcher at RIKEN Center for Brain Science and TOYOTA Collaboration Center (理化学研究所 脳神経科学研究センター) since 2012, also at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, スイス連邦工科大学ローザンヌ校) for 2016 with Swiss National Science Foundation grant. He is co-chair of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Technical Committee on Human Movement Understanding. He was awarded with the 15th Annual Delsys Prize 2017 for Innovation in Electromyography from De Luca Foundation, USA.
