Biography

Dr. Amine Abou Moughlbay received his PhD in Robotics from Ecole Centrale of Nantes - France in 2013, and his Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Faculty of Engineering of the Lebanese University in 2009 with a specialty in Automatic Control and Robotics from Ecole Centrale of Nantes.

After graduation, he has been an associate professor at the Electronic, Electrotechnic and Automation Department (Vision and Robotics section) of University of Picardie Jules Verne – France. He was responsible of Master 2 module on Advanced Perception and mobile robotics, and the supervisor of Master projects on modeling and control of mobile and industrial robots.

From September 2014 to August 2016, he was a member of Robotics group at Industry and Transport Division of Tecnalia (Spain) where he was involved in several projects dealing with visual servoing and control of complex robotic systems and the use of several RGB-D sensors for workspace monitoring in a safe collaborative human-robot environment.

He is currently a full-time Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at BAU, Debbieh Campus.
