Research Interests

Karinne Ramirez-Amaro is a postdoctoral researcher and a Laura Bassi fellow at the Institute for Cognitive Systems. Karinne received her PhD degree the 4th May 2015 with summa cum laude, the highest grade granted by the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology department at the Technical University of Munich. Karinne performed her PhD under the supervision of Prof. Gordon Cheng and she join ICS since January 2013. Previously, from October 2009 until Dec 2012 she was a member of the Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS) group under the supervision of Prof. Michael Beetz. Karinne got her Master in Computer Science, with honors, at the Center for Computing Research of the National Polytechnic Institute (CIC-IPN) in Mexico City, Mexico (www.cic.ipn.mx).

Awards

  • Laura Bassi Award for one year research project as postdoctoral fellow, 2016 . With this award, Technische Universität München (TUM) promotes women in science. The title of my research project is "Exploiting semantic representations to infer human activities from different input sources". Laura Bassi was the first female scientist who was awarded with a professorship at an European university in 1776. The funding is provided by the government of Bavaria. For more information visit here.
  • Excellent Doctoral degree for female engineering students, 2015: This prize is given as a recognition to the outstanding final or doctoral thesis from Bavarian universities to female graduates in engineering. This prize is granted by the Bavarian Ministry for Science, Education, Arts and Cultural Affairs, Germany on September 2015. For more information visit http://www.km.bayern.de/pressemitteilung/9730/nr-349-vom-15-09-2015.html, also visit http://www.km.bayern.de/studenten/meldung/3758.html.
  • Dr. Kanako Miura Travel Grant: In recognition of Dr. Kanako Miura's contributions to Humanoid Robotics, the IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Humanoid Robotics initiated the Miura Memorial award. The goal is to assist female PhD and MS students entering the field with travel to Humanoids 2013 in Atlanta. This year (2013), 6 people received the award (http://www.humanoids2013.com/support.html).
  • DFG Student Travel Support: Thanks for the generous support from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), PhD and master students who are studying at German universities and research institutions are invited to apply for travel support to participate ICRA 2013. Only 20 students obtained this support out of 89 applications (http://www.icra2013.org/?page_id=771).
  • Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship: Europe, the Middle East and Africa 2011. In Anita Borg honor, Google support women in technology with the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship. Google hopes to encourage women to excel in computing and technology and become active role models and leaders in the field (http://www.google.com/anitaborg/emea/winners.html).
