A new Ph.D!
Congrats to Michael Koptev who’s public defense took place on the 21.09.2023. He successfully graduated presenting his thesis titled: “Implicit Distance Functions: Learning and Applications in Robotics” Congratulation to him for this amazing achievement!
LASA has the great advantage of being not far from the swiss Alps. Which means that on their free time some of the LASA people sometime go exploring together. This was a nice week-end where some of us went to discover the nice scenery not so far form the EPFL campus!
Snowy day at the LASA
Winter has been pretty dry and warm in Switzerland until last week. The first heavy snow fall of the winter in Lausanne was a welcome sight and the occasion for some to exercise their artistic talent as snow sculpting.
Galette des Rois
At LASA we never pass on an occasion to eat good food! Most of us were back at the lab today, it was a great occasion to share a late “Galette des Rois“. Congrats to Michael K. and Lukas, our Kings for the day and many thanks to Aude for the treat!
LASA has a new blog
The blog is dead, long live the blog! The venerable old LASA blog has served his purpose and those who want to entertain the nostalgia of the LASA days of old can still consult it here. But from now on you can follow the brand new adventures of the LASA people right here!
