Prajval Kumar Murali

I am a second year Ph.D. candidate at the BMW Group and the University of Glasgow working on Visuo-Tactile Perception for Human-Robot Interaction under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Mohsen Kaboli and Prof. Dr. Ravinder Dahiya.

Previously, I have worked as a robotics engineer at the Dynamic Interaction Control group at the Italian Institute of Technology from Sept 2018 to April 2020. Here, I worked in a joint lab with Danieli Automation towards reducing risks related to occupational health hazards and thereby increasing safety for workers in the steel industry through human-robot collaboration. I graduated from the European Masters on Advanced Robotics (EMARO+), an Erasmus Mundus Master’s program at Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France and University of Genova, Italy in September 2018. I worked on my Master's thesis on Human-Robot Collaboration in a manufacturing environment at the Schaeffler Group. I have been awarded the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Consortium Scholarship by the European Union for my master's program. I earned my bachelor's degree in engineering with highest distinctions in 2016 from the National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli, India.
