Michael Herrmann received a Diploma (1988) from the University of Leipzig and a Doctorate for the same institution (1993). He was working as a research assistant from 1992 and as a postdoc in Denmark and Japan. His PhD focused on mathematical aspects of recurrent networks. In 2008, after a temporary position as an assistant professor at the University of Göttingen, he was appointed to the post of Lecturer in Robotics at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. He has taught courses on Robotics, Reinforcement learning and Natural Computing. His research interests include swarm robotics, dynamical systems, learning and optimisation, computational neuroscience, and cognitive psychology.
