My name is Tu-Hoa Pham and I am a research scientist in the cognitive computing group of IBM Research Tokyo. My research interests lie in the field of humanoid robotics, in particular how techniques from various areas such as computer vision, machine learning and haptics may lead to more autonomous, self-learning robots.

Prior to that, I graduated in 2013 with a Diplôme d'Ingénieur SUPAERO from the French Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace and an M.Sc. in Probability and Statistics from the University of Toulouse. During these studies, I completed an internship in satellite control and flight dynamics at Airbus Defence and Space in Friedrichshafen, Germany, and a research stay at the Computer Vision and Robotics Laboratory of Prof. Antonis A. Argyros in Heraklion, Greece. I was also a teaching assistant at the Mechanical and Civil Engineering department of the University of Montpellier until I moved to Japan to complete my Ph.D. at the CNRS-AIST Joint Robotics Laboratory, under the supervision of Prof. Abderrahmane Kheddar.
