Danica Kragic is a Professor at the School of Computer Science and Communication at KTH, Stockholm. She is a principal investigator several projects: Human Machine Collaborative Systems, Robot Learning by Demonstration and  Modeling Complex Robot Manipulation Tasks by Human Interaction and Learning. She is a coordinator for the EU project GRASP and a co-PI for the EU project PACO-PLUS and CogX. These aim at the design of cognitive robots capable of developing perceptual, behavioural and cognitive categories in a measurable way and of communicating and sharing these with humans and other artificial agents. 

She is also the Director of the Centre for Autonomous Systems where she is coordinating NOMAN: Novel Manipulation Project that involves students from four departments: Computational Vision and Active Perception (CVAP), Mechatronics/Machine elements (DAMEK), Signal Processing and Control (S3) and Optimisation and Systems Theory (OPTSYST). Her research interests involve robust vision based control, human-robot interaction, vision systems, path planning and modeling of redundnt robotic systems. Danica Kragic is involved in teaching of both graduate nad undergraduate courses and suprevision of Master and PhD students.
