Ansgar Koene

Senior Research Fellow (Digital Humanities)

University of Nottingham

Ansgar Koene is a Senior Research Fellow with the CaSMa project. He has a multi-disciplinary research background, having worked and published on topics ranging from bio-inspired Robotics, AI and Computational Neuroscience to experimental Human Behaviour/Perception studies. Prior to joining the Horizon Institute for Digital Economy Research (University of Nottingham), Ansgar worked at the University of Utrecht (Utrecht, the Netherlands), INSERM (Lyon, France), UCL (London, UK), ATR (Kyoto, Japan), NTU (Taipei, Taiwan), University of Sheffield (Sheffield, UK), RIKEN BSI (Tokyo, Japan) and University of Birmingham (Birmingham, UK). Relevant for the CaSMa project is his recent work as project leader on the development of a wiki-based platform for facilitating interdisciplinary sharing of information related to human, animal and robot behaviour. His core interest is in understanding how humans and other living creatures perceive and behave; respond and act upon their environment and how this dynamic interplay shapes them into who they are.
