Welcome and thank you for visiting my web page. In this web page you can find out more about my current and past research topics, publications and projects. If you are interested in a brief overview of my background, please read my brief CV . Along my research I had the opportunity to work with several robotic platforms which I also describe in this web page. You can also take a look at my full CV.

Take a look at the recent NEWS :)

Brief CV

Dr. Karinne Ramirez Amaro is a Post-doctoral researcher at the Chair for Cognitive Systems (ICS). She finished her PhD research with summa cum laude, the highest grade granted by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). She performed her PhD under the supervision of Prof. Gordon Cheng and she joined ICS in January 2013. From October 2009 until Dec 2012, she was a member of the Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS) group headed by Prof. Michael Beetz. She received a Master in Computer Science with honors at the Center for Computing Research of the National Polytechnic Institute (CIC-IPN) in Mexico City, Mexico in November 2007. She studied Computer Systems Engineering at the Technological Institute of Merida (I.T.M.) in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, where she received her Bachelor degree in May 2004.

Karinne received the Laura Bassi award granted by TUM and the Bavarian government to female scientist for one year project founding as postdoctoral fellow, Germany on December 2015. She was awarded with the price of excellent Doctoral degree for female engineering students, granted by the state of Bavaria, Germany on September 2015. In addition, she was granted with a scholarship for a Ph. D. research by DAAD – CONACYT and she received the Google Anita Borg scholarship in 2011. Currently, she is involved in the EU FP7 project Factory-in-a-day. Her research interests include semantics representations in order to understand and to find models that generalize and explain the human everyday activities from observations.
