Canada CIFAR AI Chair
Pan-Canadian AI Strategy
Angela Schoellig is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair at the Vector Institute and an associate professor at the Institute for Aerospace Studies at the University of Toronto. She is a principal investigator of the NSERC Canadian Robotics Network and of the University’s Robotics Institute, and associate director at the Center for Aerial Robotics Research and Education (CARRE).
Schoellig conducts research at the intersection of robotics, controls, and machine learning. Her goal is to enhance the performance, safety, and autonomy of robots by enabling them to learn from past experiments and from each other.
