Bahaa Aldeeb

Researcher in Robot Learning & Perception towards Manipulation


I am a researcher interested in mobile robot perception and machine learning. Exploring ways of leveraging weak signals to boostrap the learning of perception towards mobile manipulation piques my interest.

Currently, I work as a research staff member in the Robotics, Perception, and Manipulation Laboratory lead by Professor Karthik Desingh at the University of Minnesota, Twin-cities.

Prior to that I earned my Masters in Robotics in 2022 and a Bachelors in Computer Engineering in 2017, from University of Michigan. I also worked as a Perception Algorithm Engineer between 2018 and 2020.

I have had the forture of holding positions at various copanies including The University of Minnesota, The University of Michigan, Zenuity, Toyota, Tesla, and ZF.


Oct 25, 2023 Attending CoRL 2023 to present GANOCS in the OOD Workshop.
Aug 30, 2022 Excited to join RPM lab as a Robotics & Vision researcher.
May 1, 2022 Graduated with an M.S. in Robotics from UMich & joined Gatik to work on computer vision.
