Kentaro Wada was born in Japan in 1994. He received his B.Sc. (2016) and M.Sc. (2018) from Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science Department in The University of Tokyo (UTokyo). In his research at UTokyo, he was working on learning-based scene understanding for robotic manipulation at JSK laboratory supervised by Prof. Masayuki Inaba and Prof. Kei Okada. For PhD from 2018, he joined Dyson Robotics Laboratory supervised by Prof. Andrew Davison and Dr. Stefan Leutenegger. He is now working on object-level semantic SLAM, which is potentially generally useful for robotic manipulation.
