Geoff Fink

Affiliated Researcher
Dynamic Legged Systems
Research center

Geoff Fink received the B.Sc. degree in computer engineering from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada, in 2007, the M.Sc. degree in computer and electrical engineering from the University of Guadalajara, Guadalajara, Mexico, in 2011, and the Ph.D. degree in control systems from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, in 2018 under the supervision of Dr Alan Lynch and Dr Martin Jagersand.

From 2018-2021 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Dynamic Legged Systems lab, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia with Dr. Claudio Semini. Since 2021 has been a faculty member at the Department of Engineering & Applied Science at Thompson Rivers University, and currently holds the rank of Assistant Professor.

His research interests include robotics, visual servoing, sensing, perception, state estimation, and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM).
