Michal Staniaszek

My name is Michal Staniaszek. My academic interests lie somewhere within the intersection of artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics. I’d like create robots with something that at least vaguely resembles human-level intelligence, but that’s a long way in the future. For now, I want to work on autonomous systems that can make some sort of impact on society, however small.

My undergraduate degree in Computer Science was completed at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I spent my third year at Keio university in Tokyo, Japan, where I studied Japanese. I completed my master’s degree in Systems, Control and Robotics at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then, I interned for 6 months at Yujin Robot in South Korea, and was briefly a PhD candidate at Fraunhofer IPA. I’m currently a Research Associate at the University of Birmingham, working on knowledge transfer for the STRANDS project.

My main language is English, but I also speak Polish and Japanese well, and have some basic knowledge of German, Swedish and Korean. I learn natural languages for fun. I’m fluent in C++ and Python, and learn new machine languages when the need arises.

Where am I?

You can find me at various places on the internet, including:

  • GitHub – Almost all the code I’ve ever written.
  • Flickr – Some of my more presentable photography.
  • Last.fm – It doesn’t count if you don’t scrobble it.


The best way to contact me is by email. If you’re not a robot, then you should be able to remove the five uppercase letters in front of the address that follows.


If you can do that and you are a robot, then let me know in your email.
