Dr Sen Wang is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Robotics and Autonomous Systems at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Imperial-X, Imperial College London. Previously, he was an Associate Professor at Edinburgh Centre for Robotics and a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford.

His research sits at the intersection of robotics, computer vision and machine learning, driving robots and intelligent machines to understand and operate autonomously in unstructured, dynamic environments through probabilistic and learning approaches. His main research areas include robot localisation, autonomous navigation, SLAM, robot vision and robot learning.

He was awarded the 2022 AI Most Influential Scholar Award Honourable Mention in Robotics. He serves as Associate Editors of IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, ICRA and IROS.

A full list of his publications can be found on Google Scholar
