Olov Andersson, former WASP PhD student from Linköping University, was awarded WASP Alum of the Year 2021. Now you can see his invited talk from the award ceremony.

Through the Alumni of the Year award, WASP acknowledges individuals who have excelled within WASP by generating outstanding scientific impact as well as contributions to the program by engagement in the WASP community. The award was initiated in 2021 and Olov was the first WASP alum to receive it.

Olov Andersson is today a WASP funded post doc at ETH Zürich and has since his doctoral graduation in April 2020 got to prove his researcher skills in a variety of ways. Besides doing his post doc in one of the most prestigious robot labs in the world, a great achievement was his participation in the prominent DARPA SubT Challenge, as part of the winning team in 2021.

Presenting a promising research career

The WASP Alumni of the Year award ceremony was held during the WASP Winter Conference in January 2022. Olov participated remotely from Zürich and gave a presentation covering his research in WASP, the overwhelming experiences from the DARPA challenge and a glance of his present research.

Olov’s presentation is now available to watch on WASP’s YouTube Channel.
