Rui P. Rocha (born 1973) is a tenured Associate Professor at University of Coimbra, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), and a permanent researcher of the Institute of Systems and Robotics - University of Coimbra. His research interests focus on the development of multi-robot systems endowed with cooperative perception, decentralized coordination and resilient autonomy, to be applied in service and assistive robotics, disaster response, ecology, industry, and logistics, for the benefit of humanity and sustainability. He has been involved in several FP6, FP7 and H2020 EU-funded and nationally funded R&D projects developed in consortium. He has been the principal investigator (PI) of some of these projects, which addressed urban search and rescue robotics, multi-robot patrolling of buildings, and ambient assisted living. He is the co-author of ca. 100 articles and papers indexed in Scopus, which were published in ISI-indexed scientific journals, book chapters, and international conference proceedings. He has had an intense editorial activity, serving regularly as editor and reviewer in top-journals and top-conferences on Robotics and has also served in the organisation of several conferences and thematic tracks on Intelligent Robotics. He has supervised a significant number of Ph.D. theses and M.Sc. dissertations centered in his research interests for the past decade. Two Ph.D. theses and 34 M.Sc. dissertations were already successfully concluded under his supervision. He has taught a variety of subjects on ECE, including autonomous mobile robotics, cognitive robotics, industrial automation, programming languages, data structures and algorithms, software engineering, electronics, digital systems, and microprocessors. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Member of the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Multi-Robot Systems. He received the pre-Bologna Engineering, M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in ECE from Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto in 1996, 1999 and 2006, respectively. Before joining the University of Coimbra in 2000, he had begun his academic career as a junior teaching assistant at University of Minho, Department of Informatics, where he taught digital systems and microelectronics between Nov. 1998 and Feb. 2000. He began his career as an electrical engineer in the Automation and Robotics division of the EFACEC company, where he worked between Oct. 1996 and Jan. 2000 in the development of automated material handling devices based on automated guided vehicles, and participated in the design of such systems for important customers, such as Bank of China in Hong Kong and Repsol YPF refinery in Argentina.
