Dr Masoumeh Mansouri received her PhD from Örebro University in 2016; this investigated a meta constraint-based reasoning approach for hybrid reasoning in robotics. Her main research interest is to employ artificial intelligence techniques in autonomous mobile robotics, with a particular focus on the use of hybrid knowledge representation and reasoning in robotics.
This was followed by work as a postdoctoral researcher, then a permanent researcher contract at the Cognitive Robotic Systems project of the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS), Örebro University. She has worked in several EU projects including AI4EU, ILIAD (Intra-Logistics with Integrated Automatic Deployment), RACE (Robustness by Autonomous Competence Enhancement), and a 6-year Swedish Knowledge Foundation profile, Semantic Robots.
She has also visited Prof. Nick Hawes’ robotics group at the Oxford Robotics Institute and had a research stay in Sven Koenig’s lab at the University of Southern California. Since 2019 she has been a lecturer of the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham
