Dr Edward Johns is the Director of the Robot Learning Lab at Imperial College London, where he is also a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) and Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow. His work lies at the intersection of robotics, computer vision, and machine learning.
He received a BA and MEng in Electrical and Information Engineering from the University of Cambridge, and a PhD in computer vision from Imperial College. After a post-doc at UCL, he returned to Imperial College as a founding member of the Dyson Robotics Lab with Prof. Andrew Davison, where he led the robot manipulation research. In 2017, he was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship, and in 2018, he was appointed as a Lecturer and founded the Robot Learning Lab.
